John, Abbot of St Arnoul of Metz

John, Abbot Of St. Arnoul Of Metz

is first mentioned in 960, when he succeeded Anstée in that office. He was reputed to be a learned and very liberal man for the times. He granted a charter of freedom to the inhabitants of Maurville formerly serfs of the abbey, and divided the land among them, retaining only for the abbey the right of levying certain taxes. He died about 977. John wrote a Life of St. Glodosinde (Mabillon, Acta Sanctoe, vol. 2, col. 1087) and the Life of St. John de Vendiére, abbot of Gorze (Bollandii, vol. 3, Feb.). See Gallia Christ. vol. 13, col. 900; Hist. Litt. de la France, 7, 421; Hoefer, Nouveau Biog. Générale, 26, 530. (J.N.P.)
