Ingenuin, St.


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.

Learn more about citation styles

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:
