Cornelio Musso (or Cornelius) (1511–1574) was an Italian Friar Minor Conventual, and Bishop of Bitonto, prominent at the Council of Trent. He was, perhaps, the most renowned orator of his day, styled the "Italian Demosthenes". Returning to ancient patristic models, he raised the homily to a high form of perfection. Musso was born at Piacenza. He was among the first three bishops present at the Council of Trent, where he delivered the inaugural oration, distinguishing himself especially at the debates on justification. In 1560 he was sent as papal legate to Emperor Ferdinand.

  • Cornelio Musso (* 16. April 1511 in Piacenza; † 9. Januar 1574 in Rom; auch Cornelius Mussus und il Bitonto) war ein Franziskanerkonventuale und berühmter Kanzelredner. Seit 1541 Bischof von Bertinoro, wo er allerdings nie Residenz nahm, wurde er 1544 von Papst Paul III. zum Bischof von Bitonto ernannt. Dort konnte er allerdings erst im Oktober 1548 Einzug halten, nachdem das Konzil unterbrochen war. Nicht nur durch seine Reden auf dem Tridentinischen Konzil galt er als „Erneuerer der Predigtkunst“.
