SAINT GILDARD, OR GODARD, BISHOP OF ROUEN, CONFESSOR

HE is commemorated jointly with St. Medard in the Roman Martyrology and in the new Paris and old Sarum Breviaries. He assisted at the first council of Orleans in 511, and governed the see of Rouen with great zeal during the space of fifteen years. He was buried at St. Mary’s in Rouen, which is since called St. Gildard’s, or in French St. Godard’s. In the Norman incursions his body was translated to St. Medard’s at Soissons, and still remains there. That he was brother of St. Medard is unknown to Fortunatus, Gregory of Tours, &c. See Pommeraye, History of the Archbishops of Rouen, Baillet, &c.
