Ulrich

c.890-973. Bishop of Augsburg. His chief source of fame is that he is known as the first “saint” whose canonization was decreed by a pope (John XV), after an account of Ulrich's life and miracles had been submitted to the Lateran Synod in 993. A letter which circulated in the eleventh century against clerical celibacy and ascribed to him has been shown to be a forgery. The principal, albeit brief, source for his life is the biography by his contemporary, Gebhard, provost of Augsburg Cathedral. This reveals that Ulrich was firmly committed to the policy of Emperor Otto I,* and was a reforming bishop.
