(Saint) Abbot (May 22) (6th century) The Benedictine Order venerates this Saint as the holy hermit who (A.D. 494) ministered to Saint Benedict in his solitude at Subiaco, near Rome, as is narrated by Saint Gregory the Great. The tradition is that Saint Romanus thence went to France, and there founded a monastery in the neighbourhood of Auxerre, where he died late in the sixth century.
