(Saint) Bishop (October 4) (5th century) Born in Constantinople, he was sent by the Emperor Theodosius the Younger to report to Pope Saint Celestine on the case of the heretic Nestorius. While in Italy he was promoted, notwithstanding his reluctance, to the Archbishopric of Bologna, of which great See he is looked upon as the most distinguished ornament.
