Book of Saints – Bercharius


BERCHARIUS (Saint) Abbot, Martyr (October 16) (7th century) Born in Aquitaine and placed by Saint Nivard of Rheims under the care of Saint Remaclus of Maestricht, he after some years embraced the monastic life in the monastery of Luxeuil, and later still founded the Abbey of HautvUliers with two other monasteries. But in that of Moutier-en-Der he was stabbed by an unworthy monk whom he had sharply rebuked, and died of the effects of the wound on Easter Eve, A.D. 696.
