Miget, St

Miget, St.

a prelate of the French Church, was born about the beginning of the 7th century. His life was written in the 10th century by an anonymous hagiographer, and published by the Bollandists, June 6. Another chronicler of the same century, Adson, in his Legende de Saint Waldebert, abbe de Luxueil, says that St. Miget presided at the obsequies of this abbot, who was his dearest friend. St. Miget is spoken of as a reformer within the Church. It appears that he introduced great changes in the liturgy of his diocese, and instituted first in the church of Besanon five archdeacons, to whom he gave important privileges. He died about the year 670. His name is found in the Martyrologe Galliean of the date of August 7. — Dunod de Charnage, Hist. de l'Eglise de Besanon; J.-Jacques -lifflet, Vesuntio, part 2; Vie des Saints de Franche Comte by the professors of the college of St. Francis Xavier, 1:236.
