Corbinian, Saint born at Chartres in 680, was for fourteen years a hermit, and then went to Rome, where the pope, Gregory II, consecrated him bishop. He returned to his solitude, and afterwards traveled along the Danube and the Isar to preach. Duke Theodo II of Bavaria appointed him first bishop of Freising. He died in 730, and is commemorated as a saint on Sept. 8. — Pierer, Universal-Lexikon, s.v.; Butler, Lives of Saints, Sept. 8.
