ST. AUSTREMONIUS

WHO in the third century planted the faith with great zeal in Auvergne, and died a holy confessor, is also honored on this day. His head is preserved in the abbey which bears his name at Issoire in Lower Auvergne; the rest of his relics chiefly in the abbey of Mauzac near Riom; and at Pierre-Encise or St. Guoine in Aquitaine. His name was famous in France in the eighth century, and is mentioned in the Roman Martyrology. See St. Gregory of Tours, Hist.1. 1, c. 30, and de Glor. Confes. c. 30; Tillem. t. 4. Baillet, &c. Mabillon has published the history of the translation of his relics to Mauzac, with remarks, sec. 3, Bened. part 2.
