main article for Saint Syagrius of AutunArticle

(Saint) Bishop (August 27) (6th century) A famous Bishop of Autun (France), who played a prominent part in the ecclesiastical and political history of his time. He received hospitably and entertained Saint Augustine and his fellow-monks on their way to Kent to convert the Anglo-Saxons to Christianity. In acknowledgment of this act of charity, Saint Gregory the Great, the Pope who had despatched the missionaries to the heathens of England, granted to Saint Syagrius and his successors the prized distinction of wearing the ornament called the Pallium. Saint Syagrius died A.D. 600, after an Episcopate of about forty years.
