Aigulphus (Or Ayof),.ST., abbot of Lerins, was born at Blois, about 630; He assumed the Benedictine habit in the abbey of Fleury, and was employed by Mommolus, the abbot, to dig up the relics of Sts. Benedict and Scholastica from under the ruins of Monte Cassino and bring them into France, which he did. He was despatched by Clotaire III to reform the abbey of Lerins, but the monks rebelled, and, havimig first imprisoned him, they delivered him and thirty-three faithful monks into the hands of pirates, by whom they were beheaded on the island of Amathis, A.D. 675. Their festival is given by the Roman martyrology on Sept. 3. See Baillet, Sept. 3; Mabillon, Life of Aigulfus.
