Augustus, St

Augustus, St., was a priest OF BERRY in France, who was crippled in his hands and feet. On this account he received much alms of the faithful, with which he built, in the village of Brives in Berrv, a chapel in honor of St. Martin, and as a reward for this devout act is said to have been miraculously restored to the use of his limbs. Upon this, Augustus dedicated himself wholly to the service of God, and gathered around him a few others who were desirous to lead a religious life with strictness, upon the monastic plan. He became afterwards abbot of St. Symphorianus, near Bourges, and died in 560. See Baillet, Oct. 7.
