The Order of Saint Benedict

Benedictine Saints A - F



Page numbers refer to A Benedictine Martyrology: being a revision of Rev. Peter Lechner's Ausführliches Martyrologium des Benedictiner-Ordens und seiner Verzweigungen by Alexius Hoffmann, O.S.B. (Collegeville, MN: St. John's Abbey, 1922).


The hypertext links used to refer to the proper entries in Calendar of Christian Historical Biographies, a reference page to biographies written over several years' time by James Kiefer for the old Christia Discussion List. Mr. Kiefer has changed locations for most of the files, and this OSB section is scehduled for a comprehensive review and re-ordering as well.

Traditionally, information about the saints has been ordered by the date of the Saint's or Blessed's feast day, usually, but not always, the date of the venerated person's death. This is the order of entries used by Lechner and Hoffmann as well before the thorough revision of the Roman Calendar in 1969.

The report of his virtues and valuable services to the Church reached far beyond the bounds of the country. He was a benefactor of many monasteries and twice visited St. Gall's.

Attracted by the reputation of St. Froilan, he was permitted by his abbot to join this saintly solitary. After Froilan had built the monastery of Morerola, he appointed Attilanus as its prior. Both abbot and prior had won the esteem of the Spanish clergy in such a degree that Froilan was elected bishop of Leon, and Attilanus bishop of Zamora, which he governed for ten years. Fearing that he was unworthy to be a bishop, he left Zamora and wandered about for the space of two years begging his daily bread, till an inner voice ordered him to return to his see, which he continued to rule eight years, after which he died in the seventieth, year of his age in 1009. He was canonized by Pope Urban II, about 1095. October 5. -- Sandoval; Mab.; Boll.

Bavo, St., 249. St. Bavo, or Alowinus, second founder and monk of St. Peter's at Ghent in Flanders, was born of illustrious parents in Brabant, and in vain strove for complete happiness in the pursuits of the world. After his wife's death he sought bishop Amandus, confessed his sins and devoted his fortune partly to the relief of the poor and partly to the support of churches and religious houses, particularly of the church of St. Peter, which Amandus had reared on the site of a pagan temple and to which he had added a monastery. Here Bavo received tonsure and the bishop adopted him among his clergy. With the bishop's leave Bavo visited a number of monasteries to derive edification from the lives of the religious. On his return to Ghent, the abbot Florbert permitted him to live in a cell near by, where he practiced remarkable mortifications, subsisted on bread and water, wept almost unceasingly and longed to be dissolved and to be with the Lord. When the hour of his death was at hand, he summoned the priest Domlinus from the distant monastery of Turnhout and expired in his presence in the year 654. -- Mab.; Boll. Also called Alloynus.
