Book of Saints – John of Naples


(Saint) Bishop (June 22) (5th and 9th century) Both John I and John IV, Bishops of Naples, are honoured as Saints. To the former, early in the fifth century, who translated the body of Saint Januarius from Puteoli to Naples, should be attributed the vision of Saint Paulinus, mentioned on this day in the Roman Martyrology. Saint John IV, successor of Bishop Tiberius in the ninth century, was a learned and zealous prelate, the peacemaker of his time. He died A.D. 853, in such repute of sanctity that he is honoured as one of the principal Patrons of the City of Naples. Locally, he is known as San Giovanni d’Acquarolla.
