Note 069
From Chapter 27 of the Decline & Fall

Ambros. tom. ii. Epist. xxii. p. 875. Augustine, Confessions, ix.16, The City of God, l xxii. c.8. Paulin. in Vita St. Ambros. c. 14, in Append. Benedict. p. 4. The blind man's name was Severus, he touched the holy garment, recovered his sight, and devoted the rest of his life (at least twenty-five years) to the service of the church. I should recommend this miracle to our divines, if it did not prove the worship of relics as well as the Nicene creed.
