Paolo Constabile

Paolo Constabile (died 1582) was the Master of the Order of Preachers from 1580 to 1582.


A native of Ferrara, Constabile got into trouble with the Holy Office as a young man, but later became an inquisitor himself, later becoming Master of the Sacred Palace.[1]

At the Dominican chapter held in 1580, he was the preferred candidate of Cardinal Bonelli for Master of the Order of Preachers.[1] As master, he visited the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and the Kingdom of Sicily.[1]

He died in Bologna in 1582.[1]
