Thomas of Frignano[1][2] (1305–1381) was an Italian Franciscan theologian. He became Minister General of the Order of Friars Minor,[3] and on 19 July 1372 was approved by Pope Gregory XI as patriarch of Grado.[4]

Tommaso was created a cardinal on 20 September 1378 by Pope Urban VI. He was Bishop of Frascati and, as the senior bishop in Urban's new college, probably Dean of the Sacred College of Cardinals from December 1378. He died in Rome on 19 November 1381.[5]
