Everyone also knows about those who had been against Hilary, most of them men - including the most powerful man in the world.
People were upset when Hilary was ordained a bishop.
Of course, things were a bit different in the fourth century A.D. and Hilary's wife didn't cause much of a stir (although the Arians against whom Hilary fought did).
Saint Hilary, Doctor of the Church and bishop of his native city of Poitiers, died there of natural causes on this very day in the year 368.
