Book of Saints – Arnulphus


ARNULPHUS (Saint) Bishop (August 15) (11th century) A nobleman of Brabant who had distinguished himself as a soldier, before entering the Ecclesiastical life. After some years passed in a monastery at Soissons, he was appointed Bishop of that See. He found, however, so many disorders in Church discipline obtaining among his flock, that his efforts to cope with them literally wore him out, and in the end he was compelled to retire to the Abbey of Aldenberg. There he died and was buried A.D. 1087.
