DIONYSIUS (DENIS) of CORINTH (Saint) (April 8) Bishop (2nd century) A famous and learned Bishop of Corinth who flourished in the second century of our era, and of whose letters some fragments have been preserved to us. One in which he bears testimonv to the martyrdom on the same day of Saints Peter and Paul in Rome is very noteworthy. Saint Dionysius was in regular communication with Saint Soter and other Popes of his age. He zealously repressed the Marcionites and other philosophising heretics of his time. The Greeks honour him as a Martyr (November 20); the Latins as a Confessor. He died before A.D. 198, when we find his successor at Corinth attending a Council.
