Bp. of Mainz. An Anglo-Saxon, he went to Germany and became associated with St Boniface, who appointed him his successor in the see of Mainz; by a special concession from Pope Zacharias, Lull was consecrated c.752 and took over Mainz on Boniface's death (754). He did not, however, receive the pallium until c.781, after Hadrian I had ordered an examination of him by three Frankish bishops. Feast day, 16 Oct.
