Thursday Saint was a Pope


St. Hyginus, Pope

Pope from 137-140, successor to Pope St. Telesphorus. He was a Greek, and probably had a pontificate of four years. He had to confront the Gnostic heresy and Valentinus and Cerdo, leaders of the heresy, who were in Rome at the time. Some lists proclaim him a martyr.
