Adalbero (or Adalbert), Bishop of Augsburg

Adalbero (Or Adalbert), Bishop Of Augsburg (887-909), was descended from a noble family. In 850 he entered the monastery of the Benedictines at Ellwangen, and in 887 he was made bishop of Augsburg. The German king, Arnulph, committed to his care the education of his son, Louis the Child. He exercised a great influence upon the ecclesiastical history of Germany, and largely promoted the moral and financial welfare of the churches and monasteries within his diocese. He died Oct. 9, 909, his remains being deposited in the Church of Sts. Ilrich and Afraat Augsburg. See Vita S. Adalbeironis Episc. August. Auctore Oudalscalco (ed.
