ST. FIRMINUS, II. B. C.

HE was the third bishop of Amiens. His father Faustinian, prefect of Gaul, who had been baptized by St. Firmin the martyr (whose life see on the 25th of September), in his honor gave him his name. Eulogius, the second bishop of Amiens, who had assisted at the council of Cologne in 346, and at that of Sardica in 347, being dead, St. Firmin II. was placed in that see, which he administered with great zeal and sanctity during forty years. He was buried in the church of our Lady, now called of St. Acheul, a martyr of that country, which he had built; from which St. Salvius in the seventh age translated it into the cathedral on the 2nd of January. The dispute concerning them, raised by the regular canons of St. Acheul, was determined in favor of the secular canons of the cathedral by the opening of his shrine in 1715. See Gallia Christ. Gova, t. 10, p. 1152.
