There is an entry in the Roman Martyrology for the Bishop of Verona who was martyred by Roman Emperor Gallenius, on April 12, 371. There are many problems with this date however, as Gallenius' rule ended in 268. The more likely candidate for Saint Zeno was confessor who governed the Church of Verona as Bishop from 362-380. His birth date is controversial but is placed sometime in the early 4th century in Mauretania near Algiers, North Africa. It is not clear whether there were two (or more) separate men with the same name or if the dates are incorrect. According to legend he was stolen at birth and briefly replaced by a demonic changeling.

St. Zeno (483 words)
At Verona a basilica, San Zenone, is dedicated to his honour, and some thirty churches and chapels bear his name.
From these it appears that Zeno was a native of Africa, eighth Bishop of Verona (362-80), an able speaker, and an untiring champion of Christianity against the heathens and of orthodoxy against the Arians.
Much controversy arose as to the time at which St. Zeno lives, whether two bishops of Verona of this name were to be admitted or but one, and on the authorship of the sermons.
