- Bartoldus of Calabria
Soldier who fought in the Crusades and was in Antioch during its siege by Saracens. Following a vision of Christ, Bertold gave up the military life and became a hermit on Mount Carmel, trying to live like Elijah the Prophet. His reputation for holiness spread, other hermits were attacted to the area, including Saint Brocard, and the community gave inspiration for the founding of the Carmelites.
