Flodoard

Flodoard

(Flodoardus or Frodoardus) OF RHEIMS, a French chronicler, was born at Epernay in 894, and became canon of Rheims. He was persecuted by count Heribert for opposing the raising of his unqualified son Hugo to the archbishopric of Rheims, and was imprisoned for several months. -After the death of the count, Hugo the son did justice to Flodoardus. He died March 28, 966. He wrote Chronica or Annales, a chronicle of France from 919 to 966, published by Pithou (Paris, 1588). He also wrote a Historia Ecclesice Remensis, in four books, giving an account of the prelates who had presided over its affairs (printed by Colvener, Douay, 1617). Both these works, as far as extant, are given in Migne, Patrologia Latina, vol. 135, together with the Opllscula Metrica of Flodoard, including his Triumphus Christi, a sort of Church History in verse.-Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Genesis 17:936; Clarke, Succession of Sacred Literature, ii, 565.
