Mt. Epifanio.

Epifanio wa Pavia (438-496[1]) alikuwa askofu wa mji huo (Italia) kuanzia mwaka 466 hadi kifo chake[2].

Pamoja na kuongoza vizuri jimbo lake, alifanya kazi ya mpatanishi wakati wa vurugu kubwa zilizosababishwa na uvamizi wa makabila ya Wagermanik nchini Italia[3].

Tangu kale anaheshimiwa na Wakatoliki na Waorthodoksi kama mtakatifu.

Sikukuu yake ni 21 Januari[4].

  2. Our primary source for Epiphanius' life is the Vita Epifanius written by Magnus Felix Ennodius, who knew him personally, travelling with the bishop on his mission to king Gundobad of the Burgundians in 494-6: Cfr. Vita Epifanius, 7; translated by Genevieve Marie Cook, The Life of Saint Epiphanius by Ennodius: A translation with an introduction and commentary (Washington: Catholic University of America, 1942)
  3. During his lifetime, Epiphanius undertook several church-related missions and exploits. Two of the most significant of these were his journey, as an emissary for the emperor Julius Nepos, to the Visigothic king Euric; and his journey to Ravenna, where he confronted Theodoric the Great shortly after his defeat of Odoacer, and pleaded for the restoration of the civic rights of Roman aristocrats who had supported Odoacer.
