|Saint Maximus of Turin
Virtually nothing is known about the life of St. Maximus, except that he was the bishop of Turin, in Northern Italy, and died sometime during the first two decades of the fifth century, AD, as the Roman armies were losing ground against the barbarian hordes. Over 100 of Maximus' homilies survive. The mostly short, moving sermons of this Early Church Father were so moving that they were copied and passed down through the Middle Ages as models for medieval homilists to follow.
