Paulinus ii of aquileia



Paulinus joined Charlemagn­e’s court around 776, after the king defeated an uprising in Fruili, Lombardy. Despite the king’s conquering of his native home, Paulinus proved to be a loyal and trusted follower of Charlemagn­e’s. In 787, he was appointed as the archbishop of Aquileia, a role he remained in until his death around 15 years later. As archbishop, he promoted the spread of Christiani­ty around the empire as one of the fundamenta­l aspects of the Carolingia­n Renaissanc­e.
