Apollinaris of Ravenna
The Legenda Aurea mentions a great number of the saint's miracles.
The grave of St. Apollinaris lies in Ravenna. In 549 the Basilica of Sant'Apollinare in Classe, named after him, was inaugurated above his grave. His relics were transferred to the church of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo in Ravenna in the middle of the 9th century , since the other basilica was too easily accessible to looters due to its location. Today relics can also be found in the Apollinaris Church in Remagen , in Gorkum , Dijon , Reims and in the Lambertus Church in Düsseldorf .
The saint's Catholic feast day is July 20th. In the Orthodox Church it falls on July 23.
