William (St) of Dijon
William (St.) Of Dijon was born in 961 of a noble family, near Navarre (Italy), and was early dedicated to the Church. He became a proficient in sacred and profane learning, and retired first to Clugny, but was soon made abbé of St. Benigne, and superior of a large number' of monasteries, into which he introduced wise reforms and a love of polite literature. He founded the abbey of Frutaire, commonly called St. Balain, in the diocese of Yvree, and died at Fecamp (Normandy), Jan. 1, 1031. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Géneralé, 22:595.
