Bernard (or BERNARDINE) of Bologna (FLOVIANO TOSELLI), Friar Minor Capuchin and Scotist theologian, b. at Bologna, December 17, 1701; d. February 19, 1768. In 1717 he entered the Capuchin Order and some years later filled successively the offices of professor of moral and dogmatic theology and several times held positions of responsibility. Perhaps the best known of Bernard of Bologna’s writings is the “Bibliotheca Scriptorum O. Min. S. Francisci Cap.”, a work which resembles Wadding’s well-known “Scriptores Ord. Min.” It was published at Venice in 1747, and an appendix appeared at Rome in 1852. Besides this work Bernard wrote an elementary treatise on philosophy according to Duns Scotus entitled “Institutio Philosophica prmittenda theologise” (Venice, 1766), and a treatise on dogmatic theology, “Institutio Theologica” (Venice, 1746). He is also the author of a “Phrasarium S. Scripturae” composed for the use of preachers and authors.
