(Saint) Abbot (February 7) (11th century) A native of Ravenna and founder of the Order of the Camaldolese Hermits, a branch of that of Saint Benedict, which had its head house at Camaldoli near Arezzo, in Tuscany. Though most austere in his habits, Saint Romuald was conspicuous for the cheerful kindliness and considerateness with which he dealt with others. He died June 19, A.D. 1027; but his Feast is kept on February 7, the anniversary of the Translation of his relics. His Order has survived in Italy to our own time.
