Personal details

Lorenzo Roverella (died 1474) was a Roman Catholic prelate who served as Bishop of Ferrara (1460–1474).[1]


On 26 March 1460, Lorenzo Roverella was appointed during the papacy of Pope Pius II as Bishop of Ferrara.[1][2] He served as Bishop of Ferrara until his death in 1474.[1][2]

While bishop, he was the principal co-consecrator of Giovanni Stefano Botticelli, Bishop of Cremona.[2]

Rovarella was a referendary in the Roman Curia when Pope Paul II named him to proclaim an indulgence for the crusade against the Hussite king of Bohemia, George Podiebrad in 1468.[3]
