CONCILIO, (Januarius - Americanized)Gennaro Lnigi Vincenzo de, clergyman, born in Naples, Italy, 5 July, 1835. He was educated at the Archiepiscopal lyceum in Naples, and ordained deacon in 1857. During the same year he entered the missionary College in Genoa, with the intention of devoting his life to foreign missions. He was ordained priest in 1859, and sent to the diocese of Newark, New Jersey, where, in April, 1860, he became assistant rector of the Church of Our Lady of Grace, in Hoboken. In September, 1860, he was appointed professor of dogmatic theology, logic, and metaphysics in Seton Hall College, South Orange, New Jersey, but failing health compelled him to resign this chair at the end of the year. From 1861 till 1867 he was assistant in St. Mary's church, Jersey City, and in 1867 was made rector of St. Michael's in the same city. His relations with the College have been maintained, and he continues to be pro-synodal examiner in theology, and on several occasions has taught moral theology in the seminary. In February, 1886, he was appointed, by Leo XIII., Cameriere Segreto to his holiness, a dignity that entitles the person receiving it to be addressed as "very reverend monsignor." Monsignor Concilio has made a special study of the summa of St. Thomas Aquinas, and contributed frequent articles to the Catholic journals, and has published "Catholicity and Pantheism" (1874); "The Knowledge of Mary" (New York, 1878); and "Elements of Intellectual Philosophy" (1878).
