Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Saint Honoratus ca. 350 - January 6, 429 was Archbishop of Arles. There is some disagreement concerning his place of birth, and the date of his death is still disputed, being according to certain authors, January 14 or January 15. It is believed that he was born in the north of Gaul and that he belonged to an illustrious pagan family. Converted to Christianity with his brother Venantius, he embarked with him from Marseilles about 368, under the guidance of a holy person named Caprasius, to visit the holy places of Palestine and the laur of Syria and Egypt. But the death of Venantius, occurring suddenly at Methone, Achaia, prevented the pious travellers from going further. They returned to Gaul through Italy, and, after having stopped at Rome, Honoratus went on into Provence and, encouraged by Leontius, bishop of Fr jus, took up his abode in the wild L rins Island today called the le Saint-Honorat, with the intention of living there in solitude.show more
