Book of Saints – Davinus


DAVINUS (Saint) (June 3) (11th century) A native of Armenia who selling all that he had and giving its price to the poor set out on a pilgrimage to Rome and to Saint James of Compostella in Spain. On his journey he was hospitably entertained by a noble matron of Lucca in Tuscany. But, attacked there by a fatal malady, he succumbed June 3, A.D. 1051, and was buried in a church of that town. His spirit of prayer and penance earned him the honour and reputation of a Saint. His cultus was approved (it would seem) by Pope Alexander III.
