Book of Saints – Epiphanius


EPIPHANIUS (Saint) Bishop (January 21) (5th century) Born at Pavia in Lombardy (A.D. 439), and elected Bishop of that city in 467. His sanctity and his gift of miracles won him great credit with the rulers of his time, a credit which he used for the good of his flock and for securing peace to his Church. He rebuilt Pavia after its destruction by Odoacer. He died A.D. 497, and his relics were translated (A.D. 963) to Hildesheim in Lower Saxony. His Life (still extant) was written by Saint Ennodius, his successor.
