Cilinia, Saint

Cilinia, Saint,

is the name of two early Christian women:

1. The mother of St. Remigius, archbishop of Rheims, and apostle of France. She was probably born about A.D. 400, and lived and died in Lauriniacum, where Remigius buried her. She is commemorated October 21. See Migne. Patrol. Lat. 135:43.

2. A virgin, celebrated at Meaux. The exact date of her birth is uncertain, but she is known to have lived in the time of St. Genevieve, the patron saint of Paris, who died about 509-512. She is commemorated on October 21. See Gall. Christ. 8:1675.
