Bartholomew (the Younger), O.S.B.M., (981 in Rossano – 1055 in Grottaferrata) was an Italo-Greek abbot.


Batholomew was a disciple of Abbot Nilus the Younger, who founded the Basilian Abbey of Santa Maria in Grottaferrata in 1004. When he succeeded Nilus as abbot, he supervised the completion of the abbey, of which he is considered the second founder.[1]
