Bruno (Or Brunon), Saint (1)

an Italian theologian, was born at Soleria, in the diocese of Asti, in Piedmont. He became canon of the cathedral, and was engaged in a lively controversy against Berenger at Rome, in 1077, before Gregory VII, who called him to the bishopric of Segni, in Campania. In 1104 he embraced the monastic life at Mt. Cassin, where he became priest in 1107. In the meantime he resumed his episcopal see at the solicitation of pope Pascal II and of the people of Segni. He died in 1123. His works were published at Venice in 1652, by D. Marchesi, dean of Mt. Cassin, and with the notes of P. Bruni at Rome, 1789-91. These works contained one hundred and forty- five sermons and homilies. He also wrote a commentary upon the Song of Songs: — treatises upon Zechariah: — letters to pope Pascal II and to the bishop of Porto: — Expositio de Consecratione Ecclesiae, deque Vestimentis Episcopolibus, in volume 12 of the Spicilegium of D'Achery.
