Not much has been discovered about the life and episcopate of Lazarus. He is reported to have had a stern appearance and he probably studied in Milan. Following Pope Leo the Great, he may also have taken measures against the Manichaeans.
Lazarus died on March 14, 449. He was buried in the Church of Saint Nazarius and Celsus in Milan. His feast day was adjusted to February 11 due to the time of Lent. A late tradition, with no historical basis, associates Lazarus with the Milan's family of the Beccardi.
