St Damasus I

Starts 12:00 Ends 21:59


Pope from 305-384, of Spanish descent, he summoned synods and councils, notably, the First Council of Constantinople, to defend the Church against schismatics and heretics. He promoted widely the veneration of the martyrs. It was he who commissioned the translation of the Bible by St. Jerome and who changed the liturgical language from Greek to Latin.
