Image of St. Pirmin

Benedictine bishop. Born in Aragon, Spain, he was of Visigothic descent and was forced to flee Spain when the Arabs invaded in the eighth century. He journeyed to the Rhineland where he founded abbeys at Reichenau, Amorbach, and Murbach, and rebuilt or restored other churches and monastic communities including Dissentia Abbey, which he brought under the Benedictine Rule. He was honored by the pope with the rank of chorepiscopus, or regional prelate, adding to his reputation as one of the foremost Benedictines in Germany. Pirmin wrote Dicta Pirinini, a popular catechism.
