Bishop and companion of St Augustine. He was born in Tagaste, North Africa, and was
raised as a friend of St. Augustine. He went to Rome to study law and became a magistrate there.
When Augustine arrived in Rome, Alipius resigned his post and accompanied him to Milan. There he was
baptized with Augustine in 387 or 394 by St Ambrose. The two were ordained in Hippo, North Africa,
and Alipius became the bishop of Tagaste, serving in that capacity for thirty years. Alipius' name
was placed in the Roman Martyrology by Pope Gregory XIII in 1584. The evidence of Alipius' sanctity
was clearly stated by Augustine's account of his life.
