Book of Saints – Cronan the Wise


CRONAN THE WISE (Saint) Bishop (February 9) (8th century) The striking characteristic of this Saint Cronan was his zeal, ability and success in the regulating of Ecclesiastical discipline. He drew up many sets of disciplinary laws, from which he came to be styled “Cronan of the Nones.” He was probably a Bishop of Lismore, and identical with the holy Prelate known there as Saint Roman. He must have flourished early in the eighth century.
