Hermit and papal legate. Anastasius was born in Venice about 1020. He became a monk in Mont St. Michel, in France, but then moved to a hermitage on the island of Tombelaine, off the coast of Normandy. In 1066, Anastasius was invited to enter Cluny Monastery by St. Hugh. Seven years later, known for his sanctity, Anastasius was commissioned by Pope St. Gregory VII to undertake a special mission in Spain. Anastasius returned to Cluny and remained there for seven years before becoming a hermit again near Toulouse. He was returning to Cluny when he died in 1085.
