ST. GENEBRARD OR GENEBERN, MARTYR

HE was a holy Irish priest, who having baptized St. Dympna in her in fancy, was her attendant in her flight beyond sea, and was beheaded by her murderers. His relics were translated to Santbeck in the duchy of Cleves, where his intercession is devoutly implored, especially for relief under the gout and in fevers; and blessed rings which bear his name are used. Dr. Wintringham and Dr. Liger, in their treatises on the gout, inform us that this disorder rages even among laborers in the countries about the Rhine, in Silesia and others, where acid wines, such as Rhenish, &c., are much drunk. On St. Genebrard, see Colgan, MSS. ad 15 Maij.
