Bandino Panciatici

Bandino Panciatici (10 July, 1629 – 21 April, 1718) as a Roman Catholic cardinal from 1690 to 1718.


Bandino Panciatici was born in Florence on July 10, 1629.[1] He came from a Pistoian noble family, and was a relative of Pope Clement IX.[1] He was educated at the University of Pisa, receiving a doctorate in law.[1]

After university, he traveled to Rome and practiced law with Giambattista De Luca.[1] When his relative became Pope Clement IX in 1667, he entered the papal household.[1] He became secondo collaterale of the Roman Curia. A short time after that, he became lieutenant of the auditor of the Apostolic Camera.[1] When Pope Clement X was elected in 1670, he resigned to respect the laws of justice (non mancare ai doveri della giustizia), returning to Florence.[1] In 1678, he was recalled to Rome by Pope Innocent XI to become secretary of the S.C. of the Apostolic Visit and of the State of Regulars.[1] He then became S.C. of Bishops and Regulars in 1686. He later became Referendary of the Tribunals of the Apostolic Signature of Justice and of Grace.[1]

On October 7, 1689, he became prodatary of the Apostolic Dataria.[1] On October 14, 1689, he became Titular Patriarch of Jerusalem, with dispensation for not having yet received Holy Orders.[1] He was consecrated as a bishop in Rome by Cardinal Gasparo Carpegna on December 21, 1689.[1] On January 25, 1690, he was named Assistant at the Pontifical Throne.[1]

The pope made him a cardinal priest at the consistory of February 13, 1690.[1] On April 10, 1690, he received the red hat and the titular church of San Tommaso in Parione.[1] He participated in the papal conclave of 1691 that elected Pope Innocent XII.[1] He was confirmed as prodatary by the new pope on July 14, 1690.[1] He opted for the titular church of San Pancrazio on August 8, 1691.[1] He became Camerlengo of the Sacred College of Cardinals in 1699, holding that office until February 3, 1700.[1] He participated in the papal conclave of 1700 that elected Pope Clement XI.[1] The new pope offered him the position of Cardinal Secretary of State, but he declined because of his age.[1] He did, however, agree to serve as prefect of the S.C. of the Tridentine Council, assuming that office on December 4, 1700.[1] He exchanged his titular church for Santa Prassede on February 19, 1710.[1]

He died at his residence, the Palazzo Bolognetti on April 21, 1718.[1] He was initially buried in San Pancrazio, but later re-interred in his family's traditional burial place, the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella in Florence.[1]
