Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Saint Agrippinus (Arpinus) of Naples (3rd century) was a bishop of Naples and is venerated in that city as a saint. According to tradition, Agrippinus was the sixth bishop of Naples. He lived at the end of the third century, and seems not to have been a martyr. At one point, Agrippinus seems to have been as popular as the more celebrated Saint Januarius (San Gennaro). The foundation of the church of San Gennaro extra Moenia in Naples is connected with the Catacombs of San Gennaro, the largest Christian catacomb complex in southern Italy. The first structure was probably the result of the fusion of two ancient burial sites, one from the 2nd century CE that contained the remains of Saint Agrippinus, and the site from the 4th century CE that contained the remains of Januarius.show more
