Book of Saints – Ivo of Chartres


(Saint) Bishop (December 23) (12th century) A Canon Regular in France, distinguished by his learning, as by his piety and zeal in God’s service. He reluctantly received consecration at Rome as Bishop of Chartres from the Pope, Blessed Urban II. His long Episcopate was chiefly notable for the untiring war he waged against abuses in Church discipline, and for his strenuous upholding of the rights of the Holy See, against the usurpations of the monarchs of the period. He died A.D. 1115.
