Benedictus-Fossatensis abbot of the Monastery of St. Maur des Fossez, was one of the monastic reformers in the latter part of the 8th and beginning of the 9th century. He is sometimes confounded with Benedict of Aniane; but the latter is never styled "Fossatensis." The monastery over which he presided was the final resting-place of the relics of St. Maur, after frequent translations to escape the ravages of the Normans. Benedictus took an active part in the reformation of the monastery of St. Valdrille, near Rouen.
