Herberne bishop of Tours, lived about the 9th century. He had been at first custodian of the Oratory of the Seven Sleepers, a dependency of Marmoutier, afterwards abbot of that monastery, which, however, is said to have been invested by the Normans in 853. He thens travelled through Gaul, but finding no safe asylum, finally reappeared in the city of Tours, where he was received as a saint. Adalard, archbishop of Tours, died in 800, and Herberne was designated to succeed him. After the desolation of Marmoutier, the Regular Canons established themselves in the deserted cloister there, and Herberne failed to drive them away. He died in 916. Some critics attributed to him the Tractatus de Reversione S. Martini, which was published in the Bibliotheique de Cluny. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
