Piconio, BERNARDINE A (HENRI BERNARDINE DE PICQUIGNY), b. at Picquigny, Picardy, 1633; d. in Paris, December 8, 1709; was educated at Picquigny, and joined the Capuchins in 1649. As professor of theology he shed great lustre upon his order; his best-known work is his “Triplex expositio epistolarum sancti Pauli” (Paris, 1703 [French], 1706 [English, tr. Prichard], London, 1888), which has ever been popular among Scriptural scholars. Piconio also wrote “Triplex expositio in sacrosancta D. N. Jesu Christi Evangelia” (Paris, 1726), and a book of moral instructions. A complete edition of his works, “Opera omnia Bernardini a Piconio”, was published at Paris (1870-2).
