Book of Saints – Adelphius


ADELPHIUS (St.) Bp. (Aug. 29) (5th cent.) The successor of St. Rufus in the See of Metz, which Diocese he governed for seventeen years, converting many pagans to Christianity. But nothing certain concerning him is known ; and it is only conjeeturally that he is dated in the fifth century. His cultus at Metz from early ages is, however, indisputable ; and the Solemn Translation of his relics to Neuweiler in Alsace in the ninth century was the occasion of great popular rejoicings.
