Jacobatius, Dominico

, bishop of Lucera, was employed in various important affairs by Sixtus IV. and his successors, and created cardinal in 1517, by Leo X. He died July 2, 1527, aged 84. He left a “Treatise on the Councils,” in Latin, which is sold very dear, though justly considered by the learned as worth very little. It is in the last volume of P. Labbe’s councils; the first edition is Rome, 1538, fol. but the edition of Paris., made for Labbe’s councils, is the only one which is esteemed, and no copy of Labbe can be complete without it. The re-impression of Venice is not valued. 2
