Tolentine Hall 1

 

Villanova's Tolentine Hall is named in honor of St. Nicholas of Tolentine, the first Augustinian friar to be officially canonized by the pope.  He is depicted in windows in the main church and in the chapel of St. Mary's Hall. Tolentine is the English form of Tolentino, a city found in Le Marche province of Italy, towards the Adriatic coast.
