Pamphilus of Sulmona
Pamphilus was born in Abruzzo, probably around the middle of the 7th century. He was the son of a pagan who repudiated him when he converted to Christianity. He was elected bishop of Sulmona in 682. He is traditionally described as a person of a very generous and kindly spirit who was much concerned with the evangelisation of the invading Lombards.
He died at Corfinio, of which he was also bishop, probably shortly after 700.
