(Saint) Martyr (May 11) (8th century) A holy layman of a rich and noble Burgundian family, distinguished by his gift of prayer and by his charitable zeal in the cause of the poor and oppressed. He was murdered a.d. 760, at the instigation of his wife’s paramour. The circumstances of his death and the miracles wrought at his tomb appear to have led to his being honoured as a Martyr.
