Saint Virgilius of Salzburg Biography

St. Virgilius of Salzburg was also known as Apostle of Carinthia. He was a Benedictine priest. Pioneer to the Holy Land in 743, and in transit home, he halted in Bavaria – and remained.

Worked with Saint Rupert of Salzburg. Abbot of Saint Peter’s cloister in Salzburg, Austria; one of his priests was Saint Modestus.

Diocesan of Salzburg in 765, appointed by Duke Odilo. Holy person Boniface twice blamed him for apostasy in light of his logical thoughts (counting round earth), however, this mirrored some rubbing between the style and individuals of Roman and Celtic inceptions, and Virgilius was constantly found not guilty. He remade the church building of Salzburg. Sent preacher clerics to Carinthia, Austria.
