ST. SILAVE, OR SILAN, B. C.

HE was an Irish monk, and abbot of the monastery of St. Brendan. Being afterwards ordained bishop, he governed his diocese with great zeal and charity. The latter part of his life he spent in Italy, where he was styled the Father of the Poor. He died at Lucca in 1100, and was canonized by pope Lucius III. in 1183. See Colgan, in MSS. ad 17 Maij.
