Bishop; also known as Genuinus or Geminus; d. c. 605. paul the deacon in his History of the Langobards (3.26) mentions Ingenuin as partaking in the pseudosynod of Maran (Patriarchate of aquileia) and he criticizes him sharply for defending in that synod (590) the schismatic position in the three chapters controversy. In 591 Ingenuin subscribed to the schismatic letter to Emperor maurice; there is ample evidence of his later conversion, however. In the 10th century the See of Säben was transferred to Brixen. The relics of Ingenuin were likewise transferred from Säben to Brixen, but at a later time.
