Venantius Fortunatus (530-609)
St Venantius Fortunatus (530-609)was a Latin poet and hymnographer in the Merovingian Court, and a bishop of the Early Church, born in Duplavis, near Treviso in Venetia, Italy.
Fortunatus is best known for two poems that have become part of the liturgy of the Catholic Church, the Pange lingua gloriosi proelium certaminis (“Sing, O tongue, of the glorious struggle”), a hymn that later inspired St Thomas Aquinas’s Pange Lingua Gloriosi Corporis Mysterium. He also wrote Vexilla Regis prodeunt (“The royal banners forward go”), which is a sequence sung at Vespers during Holy Week.
