ST. SALVIUS, OR SAUVE, BISHOP OF AMIENS,
FAMOUS for miracles, succeeded Ado in 672, and
flourished in the reign of Theodoric III. His relics rest at
Montreuil, in Picardy, in the Benedictin Abbey which bears his name,
whither they were translated from the cathedral of Amiens, several
years alter his death, as is related in this anonymous life, a piece
of uncertain authority with regard to his actions. A relic of this
saint was formerly kept with great veneration in the cathedral of
Canterbury, mentioned in the history of that church, &c. This
saint must not be confounded with St. Salvius of Alby, nor with the
martyr of this name in Africa, on whose festival St. Austin made a
sermon. See his anonymous life in Bollandus; also Baillet, Gall.
Christ. Nova, t. 10, p. 1154. This seems the day of his translation,
and the 28th of October that of his death.
