He married a noble lady, and founded a monastery near Flaviacum; but retired, cir. A.D. 648, to the monastery of Pentallum, near Rouen, of which he became abbot. Later he withdrew to a cave near the Seine, where he was ordained presbyter, but finally returned to Flaviacum, over which he presided till his death, September 24, 658. See Smith, Dict. of Christ.
