Book of Saints – John of Ravenna


(Saint) Bishop (January 12) (5th century) The Bishop of Ravenna (A.D. 452-A.D. 494) who saved his flock from the fury of Attila the Hun, and mitigated its sad lot when the city was taken by Theodoric, King of the Ostro-Goths. He was eminent for the energy and wisdom of his government, and by his prudent counsel greatly aided Pope Saint Gelasius in the adapting of Church discipline to the needs of that age of barbarism.
