(Saint) Bishop Martyr (June 26) (5th century) By birth a Roman noble, he was at an early age made Bishop of Trent at the foot of the Alps. He was a learned man, and some of his writings against the heretics of his time are still extant. But he devoted himself chiefly to the conversion of the heathens, still very numerous in and around his Diocese. In the end he was by them stoned to death.
