(Saint) Bishop (January 16) (5th century) Born probably in the actual Lorraine of a Roman Consular family, he renounced Paganism in his youth and travelled with Saint Caprasius to Greece. There he passed some years. Returning to France, he founded on the Mediterranean islet of Lerins the famous Abbey of that name (A.D. 400 about). In A.D. 426 he was forced to accept the Archbishopric of Aries, in which dignity, on his death, three years later, he was succeeded by his disciple Saint Hilary.
