Book of Saints – Lauto


Lauto (Laudo, Laudus, Lo) (April 22) (Saint) Bishop (6th century) For forty years (A.D. 528-A.D. 568) Bishop of Coutances in Normandy, he assisted at several French Councils. He was present at the deathbeds of his friends, the Bishops, Saint Melanius of Rouen and Saint Paternus of Avranehes; as also at that of the Abbot Saint Marculphus. He enriched his Church out of his family property at Briovere, now called after him Saint Lo. He appears to have been one of the most energetic as well as one of the most loved sixth century Prelates.
