Benedictine monk called "the Mailed" because of the iron coat of mail that he wore against his skin. Born in Umbria, Italy, in 995, he was ordained illegally when his father bribed the local bishop. Dominic decided to perform penance for the rest of his life. After a period as a hermit, about 1040 he became a Benedictine under St. Peter Damian at Fontavellana.
