Description/Abstract

This article tells the story of Liagno (or Liano), an author active in Europe during the early nineteenth century. The author discovered the little-known author while research annotations in the von Ranke collection within the Syracuse University Special Collections. He traveled to many cities and wrote in many languages, became a monk, priest, and then converted to Calvanism. Appropriately, he became responsible for cataloging materials in the area of theology, history, and literature in multiple languages.
