Ruggero Bonghi (1826–1895)

Bonghi, Ruggero (bōn’gē). An Italian scholar and controversial writer; born in Naples, March 20, 1826; died at Torre del Greco, Oct. 22, 1895. His early career indicated scholarly activities only, for he made fine studies and versions of Aristotle and Plato; but later he took up such subjects as ‘The Financial History of Italy, 1864–88’ (1868); ‘The Life and Times of Valentino Pasini’ (1867); and ‘The Life of Jesus’ (1890); the popularity and value of these and other works giving him great prominence.
