Loup (Lat Lupus), Saint
Loup (Lat. Lupus), Saint a French prelate, was born in the neighborhood of Bayeux. There is a legend, according to which St. Ruffinian, bishop of Bayeux, educated the young Loup, who soon became the most learned and most distinguished among all the clerks at Bayeux. Thus, at the death of Ruffinian, he was elected by the whole people his successor, and consecrated by Sylvester, archbishop of Rouen. Saint Loup died about the year 465. To him has often been attributed the Life of St. Raimbert, bishop of Bayeux. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
