Amancius, St

Amancius, St.

was a priest of Tifernum, or Citta di Castello, in Umbria. He lived in the 6th century, in the time of St. Gregory the Great. The fame of his miracles induced Floridus, bishop of Tifernum, to make him known to St. Gregory, who brought him to Rome and lodged him in the hospital for the sick, where he is said to have performed many wonderful cures. His festival is marked on Sept. 26, and his history is contained in ch. 35 of the 3d book of the Dialogues of St. Gregory.
