Bonagratia of Bergamo[1] (c. 1265-1340) was a leading supporter of the Franciscan Spirituals from within the Franciscan movement. He was a well trained lawyer before entering the Franciscans,[2] and represented the Franciscans at the Papal Curia.[3] The Appellatio magna monacensis, an important manifesto of the group around Michael of Cesena, has been attributed to him.

He had been thrown in prison for his heretical views.[4]
