Positions Held

Mancini had studied at the University of Siena before choosing an ecclesiastical career. He was ordained a priest in 1806. As vicar-general of Fiesole, he was arrested in 1811 under Napoleon's orders for opposing the nomination of d'Ormond to the position of archbishop of Florence, and he was deported to Piedmont. There he remained for three years before being exiled to France. He was allowed to return to Florence in 1815 and resumed his career within the Church. As archbishop, he displayed a conservative approach with the goal of restoring the Church as the centre of life of the state.[6]
