Fishburn and Hughes: An Italian Dominican, commonly referred to as Annius of Viterbo, who edited seventeen treatises of Antiquitatum Variarum, a collection of fragments by various ancient writers, and used astrology to predict the fall of the Turkish Empire. Though honoured in his lifetime, he later fell into disrepute. No reference has been found for the story that John of Viterbo was a sorcerer and went mad at the sight of the Trinity.
