Butler’s Lives of the Saints – Saint Braulio, Bishop of Saragossa, Confessor

Saint Braulio of SaragossaArticle

He was the great assistant of Saint Isidore of Seville, in settling the discipline of the Church of Spain, and is one of those holy pastors to whose zeal, learning, and labours it has always professed itself much indebted. He died in 646, in the twentieth year of his episcopacy. He has left us two letters to Saint Isidore, an eulogium of that saint, and a catalogue of his works: also a hymn in Iambic verse in honour of Saint Emilian, and the life of that servant of God, who after living long a hermit, was called to serve a parish in the diocess of Tarragon, where a famous monastery now bears his name.
