(Saint) (October 13) (10th century) A Count of Aurillac, who led a life of great virtue and practised in the world the penitential exercises of the cloister. He denied himself every comfort in order to relieve the distress of the poor. He was scrupulously just and at the same time most considerate in his dealings with his numerous vassals. He died A.D. 909, and many miracles attested his sanctity.
