medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Anthony (d. 1231) belonged to a noble family of Lisbon, whence he is also known as Anthony of Lisbon.  An Augustinian canon at that city's monastery of St. Vincent, he studied in Lisbon and in Coimbra and was ordained priest before transferring in about 1220 to the Franciscans.  Upon entering his new order he took the the saint's name by which he is known (previously he had been called Fernando or something similar).  An exceptionally effective preacher, Anthony was first sent as a missionary to Morocco but soon returned to Europe on account of poor health.  He preached against heresy in Milan and in southern France and in 1227 was appointed provincial for much of northern Italy, with his seat in Padua.  Soon Anthony was also serving as lector for the Franciscans at Bologna.

Worn out by his efforts, Anthony resigned his offices in 1230.  In 1231, shortly before his death at the age of thirty-six, he was preaching to great crowds at Padua.  He was buried initially at his order's little church of the BVM in Padua.  Anthony was canonized in 1232 (the approximate date of his first Vita, BHL 587).  In 1263 he was translated to Padua's then unfinished great church dedicated to him, now known informally as the basilica del Santo.  He was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church in 1946.  Today is his _dies natalis_ and his principal feast day in the Roman Catholic Church.
