Book of Saints – Hugh of Rouen


(Saint) Bishop (April 9) (8th century) The son of Drogo, Duke of Burgundy, and grandson of Pepin of Heristal (not as has been erroneously surmised, a son of Charles Martel), who from being Vicar-General of Metz, became (A.D. 722) Archbishop of Rouen. After having for some time administered, together with his own, the Dioceses of Paris and Bayeux, he died at Jumieges A.D. 730. In the ninth century his relics were brought to Aspre in Belgium, to save them from profanation at the hands of the Norman invaders of the North of France.
