(Saint) (July 2) (6th century) A pious woman of Chartres (France), who on the death of her two children, with the consent of her husband, betook herself to a hermitage, where she spent the rest of her life in the practices of prayer, self-denial and work for the good of others. Round her death-bed (A.D. 570) were gathered several pious women who had adopted her mode of life. Mention is made of her as a Saint by her contemporary, Saint Gregory of Tours.
