Butler’s Lives of the Saints – Saint Benignus, or Binen, Bishop


He was a disciple of Saint Patrick, by whom he was appointed to the see of Armagh, after that apostle had resigned it. He was eminent for piety and virtue, and for the gentleness of his disposition; and resigned his see three years before his death, which happened in 468. See Colgan and Ware.
