The Saints: St. Bruno
c. 1030 - 1101 / Feast - Oct. 6
Saint Bruno was born to nobility in Cologne, Germany. After studies in France, he was ordained a priest and about 1056 began a 20-year stint teaching theology at Reims, France. But when Bruno denounced the archbishop for simony, he was forced to leave.
With six companions, he withdrew to Chartreuse, France, to found the Carthusian order combining solitary and communal living. In 1090, Pope Urban II summoned him to Rome as an adviser, but Bruno was unhappy away from his order.
He was allowed to start another charterhouse in Calabria, Italy, where he later died.
