Blessed Frederick of Hirsau

Blessed Frederick of HirsauMemorial

Profile

Born to the Swabian nobility. Benedictine monk at Einsideln, Germany. First abbot of the reconstructed Hirsau monastery in the Black Forest area on 7 March 1066. During his short abbacy, the house began its rise to become famed for the piety and learning of its brothers. However, Frederick’s insistence on strict adherence to the Benedictine Rule caused some of the monks to slander him and have him deposed in 1069. He stayed on for a while as a monk, but eventually retired to Ebersberg monastery near Heidelberg, Germany.

Memorial

Profile

Grandson of King Radbon of the Frisians. Educated by the priests at Utrecht, Netherlands. Priest, known for his learning and personal piety. Catechist and instructor to converts. Bishop of Utrecht in 825. Frederick worked to reform his clergy, regularize Church practice in his diocese, and opposed incestuous marriages, especially among the nobility. He dispatched a group of missionaries under the leadership to Saint Odulphus to evangelize the pagans to the north of Utrecht, and worked with them around Walcheren. He composed a prayer to the Blessed Trinity that was used for ages in the Netherlands. The memory of his life and sanctity were preserved in a poem by his contemporary Saint Rabanus Maurus.

Frederick became involved in the royal politics of his day, and was especially involved in the domestic problems of Emperor Louis the Debonair, Empress Judith, and their sons. Frederick openly chastised Judith for her immoral and adulterous lifestyle, which has led many writers to conclude that Judith hired the men who murdered Frederick. However, it is more likely that they were pagans from Walcheren, many of whom were violently opposed to the Christian missionaries, and who martyred him for his work.
