Book of Saints – Eumenius


EUMENIUS (Saint) Bishop (September 18) (3rd century) A saintly Bishop of Gortyna in Crete, conspicuous for his charity. He died in exile in the Thebaid in Upper Egypt, or perhaps at Thebes in Boeotia (Greece). He flourished in the latter half of the third century. For the many miracles he wrought in life and after death, he has become known as the Thaumaturgus or Wonder-worker. His relics were translated to Crete in the seventh century.
