St. Eusebius of Vercelli

St. Eusebius of Vercelli was born in Sardinia in 283. He was a priest in Rome who became the bishop of Vercelli, Italy, Dec. 16, 340. The saint fought against Arianism, a heresy which denied Christ’s divinity. At one point he was exiled to Palestine due to his battle with the heresy. Friends of St. Eusebius said he was a great writer, but none of the saint’s work has survived. Some say he was martyred by the Arians, but it is not known for sure. St. Eusebius died in 371.
