(1302-1373) Confessor, Bishop of Fiesole, apostle of Florence, born Florence; died Fiesole. Repenting his dissolute youth, he joined the Carmelite Order. He was consecrated Bishop of Fiesole, 1360, and was sought everywhere as a peacemaker; at Bologna he made peace between the nobility and the people. Miracles multiplied at his death. He is represented holding a cross, with a wolf and lamb at his feet, and floating above a battlefield on a cloud or a white palfrey. Canonized, 1629. Relics at Florence. Feast, Roman Calendar, 4 February.
