Book of Saints – Salvius

main article for Saint Salvius of AlbiArticle

(Sauve) (Saint) Bishop (September 10) (6th century) Saint Gregory of Tours gives some account of his life and miracles. He was, it is most likely, of Frankish extraction, and from being a monk and later an Abbot, was promoted to the Bishopric of Albi, where he devoted himself to his flock. He was especially careful of his poor, among whom he more than once distributed all the goods he had. There is a certain confusion in some of the Chronicles, not all of which disentangle, in regard to details, what regards Saint Salvius of Albi from matters connected with Saint Salvius of Amiens and Saint Salvius of Angouieme. All three were French Saints and Bishops, and more or less contemporaries.
