Butler’s Lives of the Saints – Saint Guy, Confessor


He is called by the Germans Witen, and was forty years abbot of Pomposa, in the duchy of Ferrara, in Italy, a man eminent in all virtues, especially patience, the love of solitude, and prayer. He died in 1046. The emperor, Henry III, caused his relics to be translated to Spire, which city honours him as its principal patron.
