Picture of Saint Bruno of Cologne
Saint Bruno, priest, who, a native of Cologne, in Lotharingia, taught ecclesiastical Sciences in Gaul, but wishing to lead a solitary life, with some disciples he settled in the distant Valley Charterhouse, in the Alps, giving rise to an order which combines the solitude of the hermits with the common life of the cenobites. Called by Pope Urban II to Rome, to help with the needs of the Church, spent the last years of his life as a hermit in the monastery of La Torre in Calabria. Roman martyrology
