Saint Barbatus - Bishop of Benevento (682).
Saint Barbatus was born in Benevento in Italy, toward the end of the pontificate of Saint Gregory the Great. His parents gave him a Christian education. The innocence, simplicity, and purity of his manners, and his extraordinary progress in all virtues, qualified him for the service of the altar, to which he was admitted by receiving Holy Orders as soon as the canons of the Church would allow it.
