Book of Saints – Genuinus


(Saint) Bishop (February 5) (7th century) A Bishop of the small town of Sabion (which has since disappeared) near Brixen in the Tyrol. He had been some time a partisan of the heresy known as that of the Three Chapters; but after his conversion, atoned by the sanctity of his life for his former errors. His shrine is at Brixen, whither his relics were translated about A.D. 1000.

With him is commemorated on February 5 Saint Albinus, a holy successor of his in the See of Brixen, who flourished in the eleventh century.
