Book of Saints – Bertuin


BERTUIN (Saint) Bishop (November 11) (7th century) Said by some to have been an Irishman, by others of a noble English family. He was brought up in an English monastery, and the tradition is that he was consecrated Bishop while still in England, probably as a Missionary Prelate, as he proceeded to Belgium and settled on the banks of the Sambre, where he built a church and abbey which he dedicated to Our Blessed Lady at a place called Maloigne, near Namur. A.D. 698 is given as the date of his death.
