Saint Drausinus of Soissons

Also known as

  • Drausius
  • Drausin



Bishop of Soissons, France. Established several foundations, even getting the tyrant Ebroin, who cared nothing for the Church, to help establish a chapel for sick nuns. Mediaeval legend says that to spend the night at Drausinus’ tomb made one invincible; whole platoons of soldiers used to camp out at the tomb the night before a battle. His patronage also helps thwart the plans of your enemies, and Saint Thomas Becket visited the tomb before returning to the treachery he knew awaited him at home.


  • c.674 of natural causes
