CHROMATIUS (Saint) Bishop (December 2) (5th century) The successor of Saint Valerian (A.D. 387) in the See of Aquileia near Venice. He was a zealous Pastor of souls, and is styled by Saint Jerome, who dedicated to him several of his works, “a most learned and most holy man.” He is eulogised likewise by Saint John Chrysostom, his friend and contemporary, whom he defended and supported. He passed away A.D. 406. Of his numerous works only a part of his Commentary on Saint Matthew has come down to us.
