Brother of St SCHOLASTICA and Founder of the Benedictines.
He started out as a hermit who worked out a splendid method of quelling lust: rolling around naked in thorns and brambles.
He was then able to concentrate on producing a liqueur like Benedictine which must have made things a lot more bearable.
