Book of Saints – Germanus and Randoald


(Saints) Martyrs (February 21) (7th century) Saint Germanus was a citizen of Treves and disciple of Saint Arnulph of Metz. He became a monk of Luxeuil under the Irish Rule of Saint Columbanus; and later was appointed Abbot of a monastery in Switzerland. In his struggles with the neighbouring Barons, undertaken in order to save the villagers of the district from spoliation and murder, he was put to death by the marauding soldiery about A.D. 666. A fellow-monk, by name Randaut or Randoald, shared with him the crown of martyrdom.
