Roman Catholic Cleric, Physician, Scientist and Author. Originally a member of the Italian Socialist Party, Gemelli graduated in Physiology at the University of Pavia. Undergoing a religious conversion, he was received in the Franciscan Order in 1903, and was ordained priest in 1908. Founder of the "UniversitÓ Cattolica del Sacro Cuore" of Milan and of the "Istituto Secolare dei Missionari della RegalitÓ di Cristo", Agostino Gemelli founded the "Rivista di Filosofia Neoscolastica", the philosophical magazine "Vita e Pensiero" and was the President of the "Pontificia Accademia delle Scienze" since 1937 until his death. He wrote several essays, including "Psicologia dell'etÓ evolutiva", "La personalitÓ del delinquente", "Introduzione alla Psicologia", "Biologie" and "Contro Padre Pio" in which exposes his perplexity about the authenticity of the miracles attributed to the friar of San Giovanni Rotondo. His criticism drove the Holy See in censuring the latter, forbidding him to celebrate mass in public. The famous "Policlino Gemelli" of Rome is named after Padre Agostino.
