Agil (or St Aisle)
Agil (Or St. Aisle)
was the son of Agnoald, councillor of Hildebert, who was persuaded by his friend Columbanus to devote his child at an early age to the monastic life.. Accordingly, Agil entered the Monastery of Luxeuil about 590, and in 615 was deputed by a synod of the Frankish churches to accompany Eustacius (q.v.) on a missionary tour in Bavaria. Having considerable success, he undertook, at the request of Dagobert (q.v.), the superintendence of the Monastery of Meaux, about 636. He continued till advanced age to carry on missionary labors.
