Cesare Baronio of Sora was a 16th-century Italian cardinal and historian of the Catholic Church. Baronio had extensive conversations with Galileo on the heavens and was quoted as saying that “the Bible teaches us how to go to heaven, not how the heavens go” in direct opposition to the famed astronomer. While he is best-remembered for his work ‘Ecclesiastical Annales’, he was responsible for many manuscripts including an updated edition of the ‘Roman Martyrology.’ This work is known as the official catalogue of Catholic martyrs compiled into a chronological list by liturgical month.

 

Baronio’s edition, first published in 1586, is significant for removing certain entries that he deemed implausible for historical reasons. This 1598 impressive folio edition was published in the Vatican by Bernardo Basa.
