Faustinus (3)

Faustinus who lived towards the close of the sixth century after Christ-, was appointed bishop of Dax, France, by authority of Gondowald, who, claiming to be a natural son of Clothaire I, aspired to the throne of Aquitaine, but was vanquished, betrayed, and slain. Faustinus was then deposed by a council held at Macon, which, curiously enough, also condemned the bishops who had ordained him to provide for him in turn, and pay him 100 solidi annually.
