Condedus, Saint

Condedus, Saint a presbyter and recluse (also called Condelus, Condedes, and Candidus), was a native of Great Britain, but migrated into Gaul in the time of Theodoric, son of Clovis, about A.D. 511. After leading a solitary life for a short time near Fontana Walarici (St. Valery-en-caux, or St. Valery-sur- Somme), and visiting St. Lambert and brothers of the monastery of Fontenelle, he took up his abode upon the island of Belcinaca, in the Seine. Here Condedus built two churches, and he himself was buried in one, but his body subsequently was removed to the monastery of Fontenelle, A.D. 1027. Condedus is commemorated October 21. The date of his death is uncertain (Le Cointe, Ann. Eccl. Franc. 2:58, 316; Migne, Encyclop. Theol. 40:645).
