St ANTHONY-THE-HERMIT

Christian Saint

Also known as ANTHONY-OF-LERINS

Hermit. Started in a monastery in Bavaria. Far too noisy.

Off to Italy at Lake Como. Oh no — Day trippers.

Try the other side of the lake. Nice cave. Quiet garden. Oh no — fugitives from justice becoming hermit disciples.

Off over the Alps. Lerins. Put up Trespassers Will Not Be Blessed notices at all the approaches. Ah, peace at last.
