Dionysius of Milan
(138 words)

[German Version]

officiated from about 351 as bishop of Milan. On account of his bold stance at the synod held there in 355 (Homoeans), Constantius II banished him to Armenia together with Eusebius of Vercelli and Lucifer of Cagliari; he died there. Perhaps still in the 4th century, his remains were brought back to Milan, though certainly not under his second successor Ambrose of Milan, as a secondary passage in a let-ter of Basil the Great would seem to want to suggest (Bas. Ep. 197.2; cf. BHL 2168–2170).
