Book of Saints – Anathalon

main article for Saint Anathalon of MilanArticle

(Saint) Bishop (September 25) (1st century) Although there exists a certain amount of doubt as to the credibility of the Milanese tradition that their first Bishop was Saint Barnabas the Apostle, it appears to be historically certain that, during his lifetime, his disciple Saint Anathalon exercised the functions of Bishop, not only at Milan, but also at Brescia, and in other parts of Lombardy. It is at Brescia that he is said to have passed away (A.D. 61).
