Suranus of Sora, Abbot
Feast day: January 24
 Died c. 580. Saint Gregory the Great records the story of Saint Suranus (Dialogues IV, 22), who, while abbot of a monastery at Sora (near Caserta), distributed all the goods of the monastery, including the herbs from his garden, to the refugees escaping the Lombards. When the latter arrived and found nothing remaining in the abbey to plunder, they killed Suranus on the spot. His relics were famed for miracles
