Book of Saints – Julian of Toledo


(Saint) Bishop (March 8) (7th century) An Archbishop of Toledo who presided over the Spanish Church in the time of the Visi-Gothic kings, from A.D. 680 to A.D. 690. Admirable for his charity and kindness to all, it is related of him that no one ever came to him for help but went away comforted and content. He presided over two important Councils at Toledo, and has left not a few erudite and useful works, besides revising and developing the Mozarabic Liturgy then in use 156 in Spain. King Wamba, on becoming a monk, received the Religious habit from Saint Julian. The latter afterwards wrote the Life of the saintly monarch.
