(Saint) Bishop (January 6) (6th century) A Breton Saint, made Bishop of Rennes, and a prominent prelate in his time, when the Franks were overrunning Gaul. He enjoyed the favour of their King Clovis after the latter had become a Christian. Saint Melanius succeeded in almost entirely extirpating idolatry from his own Diocese of Rennes, and died in great fame of sanctity A.D. 530.
