John of Monte Marano, St.


Bishop and patron of the city of Monte Marano, Province of Avellino, Italy; fl. late 11th century. Said to have been a benedictine monk, he was nominated bishop on request of the faithful of the city by gregory vii in 1074 and consecrated at Benevento. He was outstanding for his charity to the poor, for whom he labored with his own hands, and according to a legendary vita he also performed miracles. His body is preserved with great honors in the cathedral of Monte Marano, and his cult was confirmed in 1906. A tradition with no historical foundation makes him a disciple of william of vercel li, founder of the Abbey of Monte Vergine.

Feast: Aug. 17.
