Chlodulphus, Saint confessor and bishop, is one of the thirty saints enumerated in the ancient catalogues and martyrologies of the Church of Metz. Chlodulphus took holy orders, but was never a monk or a hermit. He succeeded his father, St. Arnulphus, in the bishopric of Metz, and is said to have been an excellent and renowned prelate, skilled alike in Church aid State. He lived in the 7th century, and is commemorated June 8 (Bollandus, Acta Sanctorum, June, 2:127-132).-Smith, Diet. of Christ. Biog. s.v.
