SAINT RICHARD, C. BISHOP OF ANDRIA IN APULIA, IN THE PROVINCE OF BARI

ALL authors agree that he was an Englishman, and was made by the pope first bishop of Andria, Ughelli says in 492; but he finds no other bishop of that see before the eighth century; nor does it seem probable that Saint Richard could be more early, the English not being converted before the year 600. His name is clearly English, or at least Teutonic, in which language it signifies Rich Heart. He was illustrious for miracles and his eminent sanctity. See Ughelli, Italiæ Sacræ, t. 4, and Papebroke, Junij, t. 2 p. 245.
