(Saint) Abbot (December 8) (7th century) A Saint of the Royal Blood of the Merovingians who, forsaking the Court, retired to the monastery of Saint Columbanus at Luxeuil, of which later he was appointed Abbot. He was zealous for Religious observance of the Rule among his monks. He is also said to have founded seven convents of nuns, close the one to the other, with the intent that each in turn should chant the Divine Praises, so that, neither by day nor by night, should their Psalmody be interrupted.
