ST. AUGULUS, B M.
HIS name occurs with the title of bishop in all
the manuscript copies of the ancient Western Martyrology, which bears
the name of St. lerom That of the abbey of Esternach, which is very
old, and several others, style him martyr. He probably received that
crown soon after St. Alban. All martyrologies place him in Britain,
and at Augusta, which name was given to London, as Amm. Marcellinus
mentions; never to York, for which Hen schenius would have it to be
taken in this place, because it was at that time the capital of
Britain. In the ancient copy of Bede’s martyrology, which was
used at St. Agnan’s at Orleans, he is called St. Augustus; in
some others St. Augurius. The French call him St. Aule. Chatelain
thinks him to be the same saint who is famous in some parts of
Normandy under the name of St. Ouil.
