Saint Paulinus (Paolino) of Nola, also known as Pontificus Meropius Anicius Paulinus (Bordeaux, ca. 354 – June 22 431 in Nola, outside Naples) was a Roman Senator who converted to a severe monasticism in 394. He eventually became Bishop of Nola, helped to resolve the disputed election of Pope Boniface I, and was canonized as a saint.
