Book of Saints – Gregory of Agrigentum


(Saint) Bishop (November 23) (6th century) A Sicilian contemporary of Pope Saint Gregory the Great who raised him, on his return from a protracted sojourn in the monasteries of the East, to the See of Agrigentum (Girgenti), his native town, and vindicated his character when attacked by the evil-livers he corrected. The dates concerning him are much disputed; but it would seem fairly certain that he did not pass away until after A.D. 600.
