St. FRUMENZIO (IV century - circa 383), Bishop of Ethiopia. Born in Tire, nowadays Lebanon, he still accompanied his brother Edesio Uncle Merope, philosopher, on his trip to India. On return, the ship was prey as it passed through Axum's kingdom, all were killed except for the two children who were held as slaves. Raised at the court of the king, his death was released, but they accepted the queen's mother's call to stop as councilors of the young heir, King Ezana. Frumenzio, who began to be interested in the growth of the Christian community, made sure that churches were allowed to build churches for Christian merchants, along with freedom of worship and evangelization. When the sovereign came to the age, Edesio returned home, but Frumenzio went to the Patriarch of Alexandria, who after listening to his report appointed him Bishop and gave him a large number of missionaries to continue the work of evangelization. Commemoration on October 27th. Colored Etching, Italy 1886
