Early Lives of St. Nicholas of Tolentine

 

All the reliable information we have about St. Nicholas depends on two documents compiled some twenty years after his death in 1305.  One is the biography by his fellow Augustinian Pietro da Monterubbiano.  The other is the information gathered from witnesses by the commission investigating his life and miracles in preparation for his canonization.
