Hugo De Fleury or De St Marie

Hugo de Fleury or de St. Marie (oftentimes called St. Benoit sur Loire), a celebrated Benedictine monk of the abbey of Fleury, on the Loire, flourished about the middle of the 11th century. His Chronicon, a history of religion and of the Church, prepared after the manner of his day, viz. consisting of notices of popes, martyrs, and other saints, Church fathers, persecutions, heresies, etc., a work of great celebrity, was probably never brought down by him later than 855, and the continuation from that date to 1034 was in all likelihood prepared by other Benedictine monks (Minster, 1638, 4to). He wrote also De la Puissance Royale, et de la Digniti Sacerdotale (found in the Miscellanea of Baluze). — Schröckh, Kirchengesch. 24, 501 sq.; Hook, Eccl. Biog. 1, 206. (J. H. W.)
