Aybert, St

Aybert, St.

a recluse priest of the Order-'of St. Benedict in Hainault, was born about 1060 at Espain, in Flanders. He lived for many years with another priest in a secluded cell, where they observed the strictest discipline. He went to Rome on foot, and after his return entered the Abbey of Crespin in Hainault, where he continued twenty-five years. The twenty-five last years of his life he spent in a cell in the midst of a barren desert, and he died on Easter-day, 1140. He is mentioned in the martyrologies on April 7. See Baillet, April 7.
