Egino, Bl.


Benedictine, abbot of sankt ulrich at Augsburg, Germany; d. Pisa, July 15, 1120. Because of his opposition to the imperial party, he was banished from his monastery in 1098 and took refuge at sankt blasien (Switzerland). gebhard iii, Bishop of Constance, sent him on a confidential mission to Pope paschal ii. Following the lifting of the ban against the simoniacal Hermann, bishop of Augsburg, he was able to return to that city in 1106, and three years later he was elected abbot of his monastery. He carried out reforms and was a zealous preacher. However, having broken off relations with Bishop Hermann because of the latter's resumption of his old ways, he was eventually forced, in 1118, to flee from Augsburg. In the early months of 1120 he was received with honor by Pope callistus ii. On his return northward that same year, he died at the Camaldolese monastery of San Michele at Pisa and was buried there.

Feast: July 15.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
