A native of Florence, he entered the Order of the Servites, of which he became Superior General.

Throughout almost all of Europe and much of Asia he missioned and extended his Order, for which he suffered terrible bitterness. On the death of Pope Clement IV, the Cardinals wanted to make him Pope; but he, to free himself of the tiara, hid until he learnt of the election of Gregory X.
