Also known as Bartholomew of Rinonici (near Pisa), he entered the Friars Minor before 1352, taught in Florence, Padua and in his hometown. Author of at least two collections of Lenten sermons, his largest works are a Book of the Life and Praises of the Virgin Mary, and the Book of Conformities, composed between 1385 and 1390, comparing events of the life of Francis of Assisi with similar events in the life of Christ.
