Book of Saints – Paternian

main article for Saint Paternian of BolognaArticle

(Saint) Bishop (July 12) (5th century) Nothing is now known with any certainty about this holy name, except that he was a fifth century Bishop of Bologna in Italy, and of such merit and fame for holiness of life that his flock from the time of his death has always venerated him as a Saint. His Church of Bologna has up to the present day celebrated July 12 as the anniversary of his departure from this life as a Festival. It seems clear that he is other than the Saint Paternian venerated at Fermo and elsewhere on November 13.
