Summary

Three biographies written in one hand. The first is of Bartolomeo Carosi, or Garosi, born ca. 1488 in Petroio (in this account Pretoria), province of Siena. Known as Brandano, "the madman of Jesus Christ," he was one of the itinerant apocalyptic preachers or "romiti" who flourished in Italy around the time of the Sack of Rome. This biography describes in detail his conversion, his devotions, his preaching activities, his miracles, and, in particular, the political bent soon taken on by his preaching: it claims that Brandano's influence on the popular classes was a significant factor in the Sienese revolt against the Spanish garrison in 1552. There is a different life of Brandano in UPenn Ms. Codex 287 (f. 49-98). The second biography is of Cecco d'Ascoli, an astrologer executed for heresy by the Inquisition in Florence in 1328 (according to this text--other sources give 1327 as his death date). The third biography describes the death of Giuliano de' Medici, younger brother of Lorenzo il Magnifico, killed during the Pazzi conspiracy in 1478 (incorrectly transcribed in Zacour-Hirsch as 1470).
