Book of Saints – Himerius


(Saint) Bishop (June 17) (Date uncertain) A hermit, but afterwards a monk, elected by the people of Amelia (Ameria) in Umbria (Italy), to be their Bishop. He continued his monastic austerities to the day of his death, and was renowned for his charity to all. After his decease many miracles were wrought at his tomb. His body was translated to Cremona (A.D. 965). This date is sure, but even the century in which he flourished (possibly the sixth) is uncertain.
