(Saint) Bishop (July 18) (4th century) A Spaniard, made Bishop of Brescia in Italy in the time of the Arian troubles. He has left some controversial Tracts; but the little we know of him we gather from a Panegyric of his many virtues, preached on his anniversary by Gaudentius, his successor, which is still extant. He was “patient, good to the poor, merciful and affable to all.”
