St. Charles Borromeo (1538-1584)

This is quite a biography for a man who was known as “austere, dedicated, humorless, and uncompromising” and who died at age 46. It is an interesting view also of the Church of his time. There is a very brief summary on the Universalis App but more detail in this Wikipedia article.
