(Saint) Bishop (October 10) (9th century) A native of Great Britain who, while on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, made a stay at Capua in Italy, and was constrained by the inhabitants, who were edified by his piety and virtuous life, to become their Bishop. During his eight years of Episcopate he proved himself a model prelate. He endeared himself the more to his flock by his self-sacrifice and ability in dealing with the needs of his people when tried by a terrible famine. He died about A.D. 838.
