Austrebertha

Austrebertha

saint and virgin, abbess of Pavilly, in Normandy, was born, in 633, in the territory of the city of Terouane, being a daughter of Badefroi or Befroi, count-palatine, and of St. Frametilde or Framense, who was also of royal blood. In 649, in order to escape marriage, she received the veil from St. Omer, bishop of Terouane. Afterwards she became abbess of Port: and in 672 first abbess of Pavilly, a nunnery founded by St. Philibertus, abbot of Jumieges. She afforded for more than thirty years an example of humility, contempt for the world, self-denial, and mortification, and died Feb. 10, 704. She is commemorated Feb. 10. See Baillet, Feb. 10.
