Book of Saints – Felix of Treves


FELIX of TREVES (Saint) Bishop (March 2(3) (5th century) The local records of the Church of Treves were destroyed by the Normans, who pillaged the city at the end of the ninth century. We only know that this Saint Felix, the second Bishop of Treves of that name, and thirty-third in succession from the foundation of the See, was consecrated by Saint Martin of Tours (A.D. 386) under the Emperor or usurper Maximus. He was a zealous opponent of the strange Priscillianist heresy. He later resigned his See and retired to a monastery he had built in honour of our Lady and of the Martyrs of the Theban Legion, where he died after A.D. 400. There is much controversy about him, and especially whether or not some of the particulars given may not apply to another Felix, also of Treves.
