Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, MARCH 30, 2012 Saint Rupert of Salzburg The early life of Saint Rupert is shrouded in the mist of the past, the exact date of Rupert's birth is un- known but according to tra- dition he was born in the mid seventh century into a Frankish Merovingian fam- ily. We know that he was Bishop of Worms, in what is now Germany, and in that capacity he became known for his simplicity, prudence, and his adherence to the Word of God. Rupert has been characterized as being a lover of truth; he was upright in opinion, cautious in coun- sel, energetic, deeply chari- table, and in all his conduct a model of rightness. Rupert came to the atten- tion of Duke Theodo It of Bavaria who was deeply in- terested in the Church of Bavaria. Theodo realized that despite the work of early missionaries the people of Bavaria remained only superficially Christianl retaining pagan customs that were woven into their belief. Theodo requested that Rupert should come to Bavaria to revive, confirm, and propagate the spirit of Christianity in his realm. Rupert agreed to Duke Theodo's request and in 696 arrived in the old residential town of Regensburg where he was received with great honor and ceremony. by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Rupert was given the ter- ritory of the Danube travel- ing to the Wallersee where he built a church in honor of Saint Peter, which be- came the foundation of the present market-town of Seekirchen. Rupert re- quested that Theodo give him the territory of Juvavum, (modern Salzburg), an old Roman settlement, it was a place of considerable commerce, where Rupert planned to erect a monas- tery and establish an episco- pal see. Theodo granted his request and gave to Rupert and his successors two square miles. The territory encompassed the precipice of the Monchberg cliffs, 'where once St. Maximus, a disciple of St. Severin, suf- fered martyrdom with his companions in 476. St. Rupert erected the first church in Salzburg, the Church of St. Peter, as well as a monastery. Upon the lofty cliffs of Nonnberg to the southeast of the town, where the old Roman for- tress once dominated the surrounding territory, he established a convent of nuns which, like the mon- astery of the M6nchberg, he placed under the protection and Rule of St. Benedict. St. Rupert was the first Abbot- Bishop of Salzburg, estab- lishing his foundations after those of the Irish monks. In addition to Christianiz- ing the people of Salzburg and Bavaria, Rupert built churches and monasteries for their worship. He also was instrumental in developing the salt mines of Salzburg, contributing not only to the spiritual needs of his flock but also their temporal needs. Saint Rupert passed away at Salzburg on Easter Sun- day, March 27, 718, known as the Apostle of Bavaria; his feast day is celebrated on March 27.
