Deicolus (Deel, Deicola, or Dichuill) of Lure was a saint and abbot. He went with St. Colulmban from Britain to Burgundy, and shared his fortunes at Luxeuil. He was a uterine brother of St. Gallus. Bodily weakness hindered him from following Columban into exile, and although left to perish in the brushwood near the monastery, he found his way to the place where Lutraor Lure now stands, in Burgundy, and built his cell there, which eventually grew into a large and flourishing monastery. He is said to have been visited by the Roman pontiff. After ten years at Lure, seeing death approaching, he appointed Columbus his successor, and retiring to greater seclusion, died January 18, 625. His chief festival has always been on that day of the year.
