Quick Reference

(d. c.710),

bishop of Worms and Salzburg. Frankish or possibly Irish by birth, he founded the monastery of St Peter at Salzburg and the nunnery at Nonnberg, where his sister Ermentrude became abbess. He then acted as a missionary bishop in the Danube area with notable success. Later he evangelized and preached at Regensburg (Bavaria). Near Salzburg he developed the salt-mines, for which reason his iconographical emblem is a barrel of salt. Many churches in this area are dedicated to him. Feast: 27 March.

AA.SS. Mart. III (1668), 699–706; B.L.S., iii. 261–2; Bibl. SS., xi. 506–8.
