Anthony was born in 1389 in Italy and entered the Dominican Order at the age of sixteen years. Despite his young years, he was soon charged with the administration of multiple houses of his order in Rome, Florence and Naples. Before being consecrated archbishop of Florence in 1446, he served as a vicar of the Congregation. The people loved him for his energy and will in fighting against the plague and an earthquake that took place in 1448.
