Book of Saints – Eleuchadius


ELEUCHADIUS (Saint) Bishop (February 14) (2nd century) A learned man of Greek origin who was converted and ordained deacon by Saint Apollinaris, and who governed the Church of Ravenna, together with other deacons and priests, during that Saint’s four years’ absence. Elected A.D. 100, on account of the miraculous apparition of a dove resting over his head, to succeed Saint Aderitus, who had followed Saint Apollinaris, he was for twelve years Bishop of Ravenna. He died February 14, A.D. 112, and was at once honoured as a Saint. His relics were subsequently translated to Pavia in Lornbardy.
