Book of Saints – Gaudiosus the African


(Saint) Bishop (October 28) (5th century) A Bishop of Abitina, one among those banished by the Arian Vandal, King Genseric, A.D. 440. He took refuge at Naples, where he built a monastery and crowned a zealous life by a holy death soon after the middle of the century. The ancient mosaic inscription on his tomb lauding his virtues, was still legible in the time of Baronius (end of sixteenth century).
