He retired to the Monastery of Cincillac, since called Tintillant, of which he afterwards became abbot, and held that office for twenty-five years. In 529 the people of Angers almost forcibly compelled him to become their bishop, in which capacity he attended several councils; and signalized himself by his zeal against incestuous marriages, especially at the third Council of Orleans. He died in .550, and was buried first. in the Church of St. Peter, but was afterwards translated to the Church of St. Stephen, thenceforward called St. Aubin's. He is commemorated March 1, the day of his death, and June 30, the 'day of his translation.- See Baillet, March 1.
