(Saint) Abbot (January 24) (6th century) An Abbot in Central Italy who, on the approach of the Lombards, then devastating the Peninsula, expended all the goods of his monastery in relieving the poor fugitives, and was on that account, when the Barbarians found that there was nothing to pillage in the Abbey, murdered by them. Saint Gregory is emphatic in his praises of Saint Suranus.
