Memorial

Profile

Priest in the diocese of Bayeaux, France. During the Norman invasions, Berthevin fled to Laval, France where he became tutor to the children of the Count of Laval, and a courtier and advisor to the count. A pious and virtuous man, Berthevin spent his free time studying and in prayer, sometimes at a nearby pond, sometimes in the church of Saint Nicolas near Mayenne, France. His religious zeal interfered with the worldly ways of some of the members of the count‘s court – so they murdered him. Martyr. The towns of Saint-Berthevin and Saint-Berthevin-la-Tannière in France are named in his honour.
