Profile

Priest. Made several pilgrimages to holy sites. He was so unworldly, his mind so much on spiritual matters that many of the people he met thought he was a lunatic. After years of travel, he decided to settle as a Benedictine monk. After some time in the community, he retired to become a hermit at Hasungen, Westphalia (in modern Germany).
