Bishop praised by St. Jerome. He was a native of Aquileia, Italy, and participated in the Synod of Aquileia that condemned Arianism in 381. Seven years later he became the bishop of the see. A friend of St. Jerome, Chromatius also encouraged Rufinus to translate Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History. He was known and revered as a scholar and was described by St. Jerome as "a most learned and most holy man." Chromatius was also a friend of St. John Chrysostom. Part of Chromatius' commentary on St. Matthew is extant.
