Juvena'lis, St.

a physician at Carthage in the 4th century after Christ, who was also in priest's orders. He afterwards left Africa, and went to Rome, where he was consecrated bishop of Narnia in Umbria, May 3, A. D. 369. He converted many of the people to Christianity, and is said to have performed several miracles, both during his life, and also by his relics after his death, which took place Aug. 7, A. D. 376. His epitaph is preserved, and also a rhyming Latin hymn, which used to be sung in his honour by the church of Narnia, on the day on which his memory was observed, viz. May 3. (Acta Sanctor. May, vol. i. p. 376 Surius, de Probatis Sanctor. Histor. vol. vii. p. 361; Bzovius, Nomencl. Sanc. Profess. Medicor.)
