Today, January 11, the memory of Pope Igino is celebrated, became the eighth after Peter from 136 to 140 AD.
Little is known about his life: Hyginus is of Greek origin, perhaps Athenian.
During his pontificate he opposes two heresies:
- one pointing to distinguish between the God of the Old Testament and that of the New Testament and which leads to the excommunication of a certain Cerdone
- the other that distinguishes i faithful in simple, for whom faith must suffice, and in learned, which can also be expressed on a philosophical level.
He is also remembered for establishing one hierarchical structure within the clergy, having instituted the minor Orders, and the sponsorship for Baptism.
Hyginus dies as a martyr during the persecution under the emperor Hadrian. His body is next to that of St. Peter in the Vatican.
