ST. PAUL, BISHOP OF VERDUN, C.
HAVING lived in the world a perfect pattern of
perfection by arms, fasts, assiduous prayer, meekness, and charity,
he retired among the hermits of Mount Voge, near Triers, on a hill
called from him Paulberg. King Dagobert placed him in the episcopal
chair of Verdun, and was his protector in his zealous labors and
ample foundations of that church. The saint died in 631. See his
authentic anonymous life in Henschenius. Also Calmet, Hist. de
Lorraine, t. 1,1. 9, n. 41, p. 402. Bollandus, Feb. t. 2, p. 169.
