Benedetto Accolti (bānādĕt´tō äk-kôl´tē), c.1415–1466?, Italian humanist and historian. From his history of the First Crusade, Tasso supposedly drew the idea for Jerusalem Delivered. His son Bernardo Accolti, 1465?–1535, was known in his day for extemporaneous poems. Another son, Pietro Accolti, 1455–1532, was a cardinal and drew up (1520) the papal bull against Martin Luther.
