ST. ILLIDIUS, B. C.

ILLIDIUS, called in French Allyre, was the fourth bishop of Clermont in Auvergne, from St. Austremonius, and flourished in the fourth century. His great sanctity is extolled by St. Gregory of Tours. He died about the year 385, on the 5th of June, on which his festival is kept in his diocese and titular abbey, though his name occurs in the Roman Martyrology on the 7th of July. His relics are kept with singular veneration in the ancient Benedictin abbey in the suburb of Clermont,‡ which bears his name, is of the congregation of St. Maur, and enjoys the privilege of having a regular abbot. See St. Gregory of Tours.1. 1, c. 40; Branche, Vies des SS. d’Auvergne,1. 2; Savaron, Origin., Clarom., &c.
