Facciolati, Jacopo, was horn at Torrigia, near Padua, in 1682. He was trained for the priesthood, and became director of the Paduan seminary, but his chief bent was towards classical philology. He re-edited the Lexicon of Schrevelius and the Ciceronian Dictionary of Nizolius, and with the help of Forcellini brought out the Calepino, a vocabulary of seven languages. His monumental work, Totius Latinatis Lexicon, was completed by Forcellini after his death. He was for some forty years Professor of Logic in the university of Padua, where he died in his 88th year.
