Angelo Scarpetti, of Borgo San Sepolcro, Italy, entered the Augustinian Order around 1254. He spent some time
in England, where he preached and founded several Augustinian friaries. When on one occasion Angelo found it necessary to admonish a man
of ill repute, the man
angrily attempted to strike the corrector of his conduct. But as he raised his arm against Angelo, it suddenly became paralyzed. It took Angelo's prayers
to restore motion to the frozen arm. There was a falsely accused man
sentenced to death who appealed to Angelo, requesting his prayers. Nonetheless, the execution proceeded. But when after the hanging the members of a lay confraternity went to retrieve the condemned man's body, they were stunned to find the man
alive. He explained that as he hung on the rope he experienced a vision of Angelo upholding him, keeping the rope from killing him. Angelo was characterized by his exceptional humility
and childlike innocence. Following his death around the year 1306, his body remained incorrupt for three centuries.
