Paul(Us), Von Bernried
Paul(us), Von Bernried an ecclesiastic of the first half of the 12th century, was canon of the cathedral at Regensburg. He was a devoted adherent of the cause of the emperor Henry IV, and a hater of pope Gregory VII. Persecuted by the clergy, he took refuge in the Augustinian convent at Bernried, in Bavaria. In 1128 he went to Rome, and wrote there an apology and a life of Gregory VII (in which are inserted some documents), and a life of St. Hercula, a prophetess and contemporary of his.
