Valiero, Agostino

Resource Toolbox

an Italian prelate, was born at Leniaco, near Venice, April 8,1530, of a, patrician family, being nephew of cardinal Navagero, who directed him in his studies at Padua. He made such progress in them that he was appointed in 1556 professor of philosophy at Venice, and in 1562 he accompanied Cardinal-Naugerius, whose secretary he was, to the Council of Trent. In 1565 he succeeded Naugerius as bishop of Verona, and in 1579 pope Gregory XIII sent him to Dalmatia to visit the churches there. In 1583 he was made cardinal, and in 1585 he was appointed abbot of Forli by pope Sixtus V. In 1590 he was a member of the conclave which appointed pope Gregory XIV. After the death of Innocent IX, the cardinals contemplated the election of Valerius to the papal throne. Clement VIII, however, who was elected in his stead, appointed him examiner of the bishops and member of the Congregatio Rituum et Indicis. In 1600 Leo XI made him bishop of Palestrina. The difficulties between the pope and the republic of Venice caused his death, which took place May 21,1606. His writings are numerous, and are enumerated in Jocher, Allgemeinses Gelehrten-Lexikon, s.v.; see also Winer, Handbuch der theolog. Literatur, 2, 61.; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. G neral, s.v. (B. P.)
