ST. MANSUET, FIRST BISHOP OF TOUL, IN LORRAIN AND APOSTLE OF THAT PART OF THE ANCIENT BELGIC GAUL

SOME have thought him a disciple of St. Peter, the apostle: but Limpen, the Bollandist, shows that he could not have founded this church before the reign of Constantine, and that he flourished in his and his son’s time, and died about the year 375, as appears from the catalogue of his successors in that see. St. Gerard, bishop of Toul in 971, made a solemn translation of his relics, repaired his church, and founded under his patronage the rich monastery which bears his name. See Martenne, t. 3, Anecdot. Col. 1024, et Collectionis, t. 6, p. 637. Calmet, Hist. de Lorraine. Mabillon, Annal. t. 4,1. 56 and 57. The Bollandists, t. 1, Sept. p. 636.
