In 1415, he took the habit of the Friars Minor and became part of the movement of the Observance, of which he became an eminent representative. Appointed preacher of the crusade against the Turks after the fall of Constantinople (1453), he took part in the victorious siege of Belgrade in 1456, but died soon after at Ilok (Slovenia), 23 October)

Born at Capistrano in the Abruzzi, he studied law at Perugia with conspicuous success, married, and became governor of Perugia in 1412. He was separated from his wife, presumably by mutual consent, and became a Franciscan at the age of thirty. He was ordained priest in 1420 and combined extreme austerity of life with unremitting effort in studying theology under Bernardino of Siena. He then became a successful preacher in Italy, attracting huge crowds and using the same techniques as Bernardino. He also worked hard at the reform and reorganization of the Franciscan Observant friars and of the nuns who were inspired by Colette.
