SS. AGOARD AND AGLIBERT, MM., IN THE DIOCESE OF PARIS

THEY were strangers who came originally from the borders of the Rhine, but were settled in the neighborhood of Paris at Creteil, a village two leagues from that city. They were converted to their faith by the apostolic preachers Altin and Eoald, together with many others. Having by common consent pulled down a heathenish temple, they were put to the sword with a troop of holy companions, by an order of a heathenish governor; or, according to Baillet, by the Vandals, about the year 400. A church was afterwards erected over the place of their burial. Their relics are now enshrined in the same. Their festival is marked in Martyrologies on the 24th, but kept at Creteil and in the whole diocese of Paris on the 25th of June. See the new Paris Breviary, Baillet, Le Bœuf, &c.
