By the age of 30 he had obtained such a reputation for excellent speaking and preaching that he was honored by a Brief from Pope Nicholas V.

He was also appointed Bishop of Aquino (home of Thomas Aquinas) and also of Lecci, where he died in 1495, five years after the printing of this book. His Sermons in Praise of the Saints was first printed in 1489 in Venice, this edition followed shortly thereafter; Folio 13" - 23" tall; 398 pages
