St. Antoninus

St_antoninus
St. Antoninus entered the Dominican Order in his sixteenth year. In 1446 he was compelled to accept the archbishopric of Florence. When the false Renaissance was beginning to give a tone of classical paganism to society he set an example of fervent pastoral zeal, joined with the love of study and of the most austere virtues of the cloister. He died in 1459.
