Book of Saints – Cassian of Autun


CASSIAN of AUTUN (Saint) Bishop (August 5) (4th century) Probably an Egyptian by birth. Coming to Autun in France, he attached himself to Saint Reticius, the then Bishop, whom he eventually succeeded in the See. He governed the Diocese of Autun for about twenty years, and died A.D. 350. Many miracles, of which some have been put upon record by Saint Gregory of Tours, preserved to him the affection of his people, who in his lifetime had been devoted to him.
