Anthelmus ST., bishop of Bellay, was the son of a gentleman of Savoy, named Hardouin. He was born in 1107, became a monk of the Carthusian Order, and in 1141 general, which office he filled for twelve years with great zeal and firmness. In the great schism caused by the antipope Octavianus, he managed so that the whole order of Chartreux adhered to Alexander III, the lawful pope. In 1163 he was created bishop of Bellay, and excommunicated Humbert, count of Savoy, who had unjustly imprisoned a clerk of the diocese of Bellay. The pope having absolved the count, Anthelmus retired in disgust to the Grande Chartreuse, whence he was forcibly brought back to Bellay, and died June 26,1178.
