Book of Saints – Corbinian

CORBINIAN (Saint) Bishop (September 8) (8th century) A French Saint who, after passing fourteen years in a hermit’s cell, gathered disciples around him and built a monastery. Coming to Rome as a pilgrim, Saint Gregory II, the then Pope, consecrated him Bishop, and sent him to evangelise Bavaria. He fixed his See at Freissingen, where, after a long and fruitful Episcopate, he died A.D. 730. A detailed account of his life and of the miracles which illustrated his sanctity has come down to us from the pen of Alibert, his third successor at Freissingen.
