Book of Saints – Dionysius of Milan


DIONYSIUS of MILAN (Saint) Bishop (May 25) (4th century) The successor of Saint Protasius in the See of Milan. With Saint Eusebius of Vercelli and Saint Lucifer of Cagliari he was banished into Cappadocia (A.D. 355) by the Arian Emperor Constantius. Two years later, when his fellow-exiles were returning to their Churches under the Emperor Julian, Saint Dionysius died in Asia, where he had acquired a high reputation for sanctity. Saint Aurelius the local Bishop, and Saint Basil the Great, enabled Saint Ambrose to effect (A.D. 375) the Translation to Milan of the remains of his holy predecessor
