main article for Saint Quintian of RodezArticle

(Saint) Bishop (November 13) (6th century) An African by birth, an account of whose holy life we have from the pen of Saint Gregory of Tours. He appears to have been among the Catholics who, when the African Church was persecuted by the Vandals, took refuge in Gaul. He was appointed Bishop of Rodez in the South of France, but driven thence by the Goths, at that time in possession of the country. He retired into Auvergne, where Saint Euphrasius made him his successor in the See of Clermont-Ferrand. His sanctity was witnessed to by many miracles, A.D. 527 is given by some as the date of his death.
