(Saint) Bishop (December 9) (1st century) The first Bishop of Pavia in Lombardy, whither tradition alleges he was sent to preach Christianity by Saint Peter the Apostle, together with Saint Juventius, his successor. The extant Life of Saint Syrus, written many centuries later, is open to much criticism.
