Saint Leo was born in Italy. He was the pope from 440-461. As pope, he clarified the teaching of the incarnation: that Jesus has two natures, fully divine, fully human. He's best known as the pope that stopped Attila the Hun at the gates of Rome. St. Leo is a Doctor of the church; one of two in the first millennium considered "Great". He promoted orthodoxy through his prolific writings and sermons.
