Carlo Agostino Fabroni
Born in Pistoia to a comfortable family, his studies led him to join the Jesuits. In 1706, he was made cardinal by Pope Clement XI. He became a close advisor and secretary of the Office of Propaganda Fide for Pope Innocent XII. From the latter position, along with the scholar Gregorio Selleri, he coauthored a censure of Jansenism and the writings of Pasquier Quesnel. The censure was released in 1713 by Clement XI under the title of Bolla Unigenitus Dei Filius.
