(Saint) Bishop (August 12) (5th century) Probably a Greek by birth, the successor of Saint Lazarus in the See of Milan. He was of great assistance to Pope Saint Leo the Great in that Pontiff’s efforts to repress the Eutychian heresy. He restored the churches of Milan, rebuilt the city walls, replaced the books burned by the barbarians in their inroads, and reformed Church discipline in the North of Italy. He died A.D. 465, after sixteen years of Episcopate.
