Chapter Summary

On 19 September 1329 John XXII instructed Orsini, in his capacity as papal judge-delegate, to deprive a certain Francesco Calixti of his benefices in the Lateran basilica and to reassign them to Giovanni de Turre, a Roman cleric in the legate’s familia. Orsini’s familia was made up in the main of central Italians, perhaps half of whom were Romans. Their intimate knowledge of central Italian affairs would have made them particularly valuable agents, and several of them clearly did accompany the legate to Italy. One familiaris who almost certainly travelled with the legate was his chamberlain, magister Ligo of Orvieto, a papal chaplain, curial careerist and Orsini family protégé who ended his days as bishop of the Orsini town of Nola.
