Saturday Saints- #76

The letter “V” is the showcase for today’s post. This gives us today’s saint, Saint Vergilius of Salzburg:

Vergilius of Salzburg (also Virgilius, Feirgil or Fergal) (born c. 700 in Ireland; died 27 November 784 in Salzburg) was an Irish churchman, an early astronomer, bishop of Ossory and later, bishop of Salzburg. He was called “the geometer”.

More can be found out about him at his wiki, located here.
