Butler’s Lives of the Saints – Saint Paul, Bishop of Verdun, Confessor


Having lived in the world a perfect pattern of perfection by alms, fasts, assiduous prayer, meekness, and charity, he retired among the hermits of Mount Voge, near Triers, on a hill called from him Paulberg. King Dagobert placed him in the episcopal chair of Verdun, and was his protector in his zealous labours, and ample foundations of that church. The saint died in 631. See his authentic anonymous life in Henschenius.
