Book of Saints – Eugenius of Toledo


EUGENIUS of TOLEDO (Saint) Bishop (November 13) (7th century) There appear to have been two Saints, Bishops of Toledo, by name Eugene. The first presided over that See from A.D. 636 to A.D. 647, and subscribed the Acts of the fifth Council of Toledo. He was eminent not only for piety and sacred learning, but also for proficiency in the science of his age. His successor, also a monk by name Eugene, was Bishop from A.D. 647 to A.D. 657. He too took part in various Councils, and to other accomplishments added that of being a poet. Some of his writings are still extant.
