Lullus Of Mayence, a noted German prelate of the Romish Church, flourished in the 8th century as successor of Boniface, in the archbishopric of Mayence. He was a native of England, and was educated in the cloister of Meldun, but went to Germany on invitation of Boniface, and was his ambassador to pope Zachary about 754. He attended the Council of Attigny in 763, and of Rome in 769. In 785 he baptized Witikind, leader of the Saxons. He founded the cloister of Hersfeld, and on his death in 786 was buried there.
