Calminius, Saint

Calminius, Saint commonly known by the French as St. Carnmery (or St. Calmele). Both Carmery and Calmele are said to have founded the monastery of Moustier- St.-Chaffre, belonging to the church of Velay, and the monastery of Manzac (or Mozac), in Auvergne, belonging to that of Clermont. The uncertainty about them, however, is illustrated by the fact that Carmery is celebrated Aug. 19, and Calmele Nov. 22. Carmery is said to have died either in the 6th or the 7th century; Calmele at the beginning of the 8th. The Vita, Calaminii, edited by Th. Aquinas, states that the saint lived in the time of Justinian. The first Justinian died in 565, the second in 711; but there is ho reason for trusting this date.
