Bartoli, Daniello

BARTOLI, bɑ̄r´´tō-lî´, DANIELLO: Italian Jesuit; b. at Ferrara Feb. 12, 1608; d. at Rome Jan. 13, 1685. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1623; was a distinguished preacher and teacher of rhetoric in different cities of Italy; in 1650 he became historian of his order at Rome. He wrote biographies, moral and ascetical works, and books upon physical science. His Istoria della compagnia di Giesù (5 vols., Rome, 1653-73), especially the part devoted to Asia, is replete with curious information; as an introduction to this work he wrote the Vita e istituto di S. Ignazio (Rome, 1650; Eng. transl., 2 vols., New York, 1856). His collected works were edited by H. Marietti (34 vols., Turin, 1823-44). The life of Ignatius and the moral and ascetical works have been published at Piacenza (9 vols., 1821) and at Milan (3 vols., 1831).
