First name: Antonio or Matteo Ricci?[edit]

In the new Matteo Ricci (archbishop) article, David M. Cheney is referenced for the idea that the first name of Ricci was Matteo. In Cheney's article on Matteo Ricci, he references Eubel, Hierarchia Catholica II, p. 222, but Eubel gives the name as 'Antonius de Rizzis', not Matteo. Cheney therefore seems to contradict his own source.

Gabriel Chow, GCatholic, also names 'Matteo' Ricci, but provides no reference.

Both of these authors are self-published.

The only place where I can find 'Matteo Ricci' is on the archdiocesan website: Diocese of Reggio Calabria: "CRONOTASSI DEI VESCOVI DI REGGIO CALABRIA", but the list is unreferenced, and no author takes responsibility. It appears to be self-published.

The published and editorially peer reviewed material should take precedence: Eubel, who uses the name Antonio. Other published sources also use the name Antonio. Consider, for example the tradition of the Chancellery of Aragon, which used the name Antonio Ricci (letter of Ferdinand I): Domenico Minuto (1977). Catalogo dei monasteri e dei luoghi di culto tra Reggio e Locri. Thesaurus ecclesiarum Italiae, XVII,1 (in Italian). Roma: Ed. di Storia e Letteratura. p. 13. GGKEY:S2XNB6X1T2T.  The Catholic Encyclopedia uses Antonio Ricci.

Ricci's own funeral monument in Naples uses the name Antonio Ricci: Ferdinando Ughelli, U. Coleti, Italia sacra 2nd edition Tomus IX, p. 532.
