  10. ^ It is recorded that he knew the whole Bible by heart.
  11. ^ Born in Rome of patrician parents, he became the prefect of the city. He soon resigned the office, turned his home on the Caelian Hill into a monastery and became a monk. Next he was sent to Constantinople as apocrisarius or ambassador. On his return he was chosen Pope (590). First in importance was his mission to England. This was important not only for the conversion of England, but also for the spreading of Orthodoxy among the other Germanic peoples of north-west Europe. He also encouraged the conversion of the Lombards in Italy and the Goths in Spain, embellished the liturgy, defended and befriended monasticism and cared for the poor. He was a prolific writer; his dialogues and his Regula Pastoralis are classics of Orthodox literature.
  12. ^ "At Rome, the raising to the Sovereign Pontificate of St. Gregory the Great, an incomparable man, who, being forced to take that burden upon himself, sent forth from the more exalted throne brighter rays of sanctity upon the world."[5]

  14. ^ Born in Blois in France, at the age of twenty he became a monk at Fleury. He was sent to Montecassino to attempt to obtain the relics of St Benedict and later became Abbot of Lérins. With four of his monks he was taken by evildoers to an island near Corsica where they were all martyred.
  15. ^ "The same day, the birthday of the holy martyrs Aigulphus, abbot of Lerins, and the monks, his companions, who, after their tongues were cut off, and their eyes plucked out, were killed with the sword."[5]
  16. ^ See: (in French) Aigulphe de Lérins. Wikipédia. (French Wikipedia).
  17. ^ "ST. HERESWITHA was daughter of Ereric, the nephew of St. Edwin, King of Northumbria, and sister of St. Hilda of Whitby. She was married to St. Ethelhere, who succeeded his brother Anna as King of the East Angles, but reigned only one year, being killed in the wars with Oswy in 655. Having thus become a widow, Hereswitha resolved to embrace the religious life, and for this purpose went to Chelles, at that time in the diocese of Paris. There she was professed, and faithfully persevered in her holy state until death. It was the intention of St. Hilda to have joined her sister, but before she would leave England she was recalled by St. Aidan to establish a monastery of Virgins in Northumbria. (Thomas of Ely says that Hereswitha was the wife of Anna, but there are difficulties which seem to make it impossible. Florence and Malmesbury agree that her husband was Ethelhere.).[27]
