Aventinus, St

Aventinus, St.

was born at Bourges in the 5th century, and brought up in the seminary of St. Lupus, bishop of Troyes. Camelianus, the successor of St. Lupus, made Aventinus oeconomus, of his Church;' but after a time he left this situation, and retired into a monastery on an island inn the river Oze (Oza), where he discharged the duties of abbot until, about 534, St. Fidolus (Fale) was substituted for him, when he departed into a solitude, "prope Verrerias!" where he died in the year 537. He is commemorated Feb. 4. See Greg. Turon. De Glor. Confess. p. 949; Baillet, Feb. 4.
