(late 7th century).

An English ‘exile for Christ’, Condedus settled in France at Fontaine-Saint-Valery, became a monk at Fontenelle (Saint-Wandrille) for a short time, but soon returned to a hermit's life. He settled on an island called Belcinac in the middle of the Seine, near Caudebec, given by King Thierry III together with other land as an endowment. He built two churches on the island which attracted many visitors. After his death there he was buried at Fontenelle; his island has disappeared, submerged by the river Seine. Feast: 21 October.

The Life, written about a century after the death of Condedus, is in AA.SS. Oct. IX (1858), 351–8 and in W. Levison, M.G.H. Scriptores rerum Meroving., v (1910), 644–51.
