St Chromatius of Aquileia’s Life History

St Chromatius of Aquileia, born in the 4th century AD in Aquileia, Italy, faced adversity early in life when he lost his father as an infant.

Raised by his mother and a large family of older siblings, he was ordained as a priest around 387 AD.

He actively participated in the Synod of Aquileia, which was organized by Saint Ambrose of Milan and aimed at strongly condemning Arianism. In 388 AD, he assumed the role of Bishop of Aquileia.

Chromatius’ commitment to peace was evident in his efforts to negotiate with invading troops led by Alaric, providing aid to those affected by their presence.

He maintained a close correspondence with Saint Ambrose of Milan and enjoyed the friendship of Saint Jerome, who dedicated several of his works to him.

Chromatius played a significant role in translating early Christian texts into Latin for wider dissemination.

He financially supported Saint Jerome’s translation of the Bible and Rufinus’ translation of Eusebius’ Ecclesiastical History.

Furthermore, Chromatius authored several respected commentaries on scripture, with seventeen of them still in existence today.

He also supported and wrote on behalf of Saint John Chrysostom, defending him against unjust accusations made by Emperor Arcadius.

St Chromatius died in 406 AD in Italy.
