Acciaioli, Niccoli Cardinal (1630 – 1719)

Price: $125.00


Italian cardinal; the son of Senator Ottaviano Acciaioli. Auditor General of the Apostolic Chamber. Dean of the Sacred College of Cardinals.

DS РDocument signed. Impressive vellum document, signed and dated 29 November 1669. Intriguing in that Acciaioli signed on the very day that he was proclaimed a cardinal Рdeacon in the papal consistory of that date. This document appears to refer to the estate of Johannes Petrus Terentius that was to go to a monastery of nuns of St. Clare, Gubbio. Signed lower right adjacent to his blind-embossed wax/paper seal by Acciaioli and. Comes with a reprint of a vintage copper Рplate engraving of Acciaioli. Merits further research!

Two other members of the Acciaioli family were cardinals. Created a cardinal-deacon in November 1669, with dispensation for not having yet received minor orders. Named papal legate in Ferrara (1670); reappointed in 1680. Cleric of the Apostolic Chamber and commissary delle Armi, 1654. Acciaioli served as Secretary of the Holy Inquisition from 1717-19. Sub-dean of the Sacred College of Cardinals. Advanced to Dean of the College in 1717 (remained until his death).
