(Saint) Bishop (August 11) (1st century) Traditionally venerated as the Founder of the Churches of Evreux and Bayeux in Normandy, and regarded as having been sent thither by Pope Saint Clement about A.D. 77. We have, however, no reliable records, and modern authorities postdate Saint Taurinus by at least a century. In the ninth century, at the time of the invasion of the Normans, his Relics were transferred to the Abbey of Gigny in Burgundy; and both before and after this numberless miracles were wrought at his shrine.
