Book of Saints – Gregory of Elvira


(Saint) Bishop (April 24) (4th century) One of the champions of the Faith against Arianism, and one of the few Bishops who at Rimini (A.D. 359) consistently refused to palter with the heretics. There is no proof at all, as alleged by some non-Catholics, that Saint Gregory took part in the Schism of Lucifer of Cagliari. His Episcopal city of Elvira, from which the See has since been transferred to Granada, was the scene of several Spanish Councils. Saint Gregory died before A.D. 400.
