Nacchianti (Latin Naclantus), Giacomo

an Italian prelate noted as a theologian, was born at Florence near the opening of the 16th century. He joined the Dominicans, and taught theology for some time at Rome. In 1544 he was created bishop of Chiozzia, in the territory of Venice. In this capacity he attended the Council of Trent, and there distinguished himself by his scholarship and his liberality. He went so far as to condemn the position of those Romanists who desired equal recognition for the Church writings as for inspired. He declared that "the placing of Scripture and tradition on the same level was impious" (comp. Sarpi, 1:293; Mendham, Memoirs of the Council of Trent [Lond. 1834], pages 59, 60). He died at Florence, April 24, 1569. We quote of his works, Scripturae sacrae medulla, (Venice, 1561, 4to): Enarrationes in Epistolam Pauli ad Ephesios, in maximum. pontificatum, etc. (Venice, 1570, 2 volumes, 8vo): Digressiones et Tractationes (Venice, 1657, 2 volumes, fol.). See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, 37:108; Wessenberg, Kirchen-Versammlungen, 3:211; Ranke, Hist. of the Papacy, 1:151; Hardwick, Hist. of the Reformation, page 282.
