Book of Saints – Atho


ATHO (Saint) Bishop (May 22) (12th century) Badajoz in Spain and Florence in Italy put forth rival claims to have been the birthplace of this Saint. From having been Abbot of Vallombrosa, he was chosen Bishop of Pistoia, also in Tuscany, and occupied that See for twenty years. He died A.D. 1153. He has left a work on the miracles and relics of Saint James of Compostella.
