      * St. Arbogast of Strasbourg
      =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


      St. Arbogast of Strasbourg, Bishop
      ------------------------------------------------
      Born in Aquitaine, France; died c. 678. Although the Irish and Scottish
      both claim Arbogast as their own, the 13th-century Chronicle of Sens by
      Richer and the Life of Saint Florentius, his successor, strongly support
      the claim of Scotland. His acta, however, tell us that Arbogast was born
      of a noble family in Aquitaine, France. His vita, attributed to Bishop
      Utone of Strasbourg (died 965), tells us that Arbogast was living as a
      recluse in the Sacred Forest (Heiligesforst or Haguenau) of Alsace when
      King Dagobert took an interest in him. The holy hermit was often called
      to court to share his wisdom with the king, who, about 630, forced on
      Arbogast the see of Strasbourg. Shortly after his consecration, Arbogast
      raised Dagobert's son Sigebert to life when he had been killed by a fall
      from his horse. Although many other miracles are
      ascribed to the saint, he was famed for humility and wisdom.

      Because of the king's affection for the bishop, the see was endowed with
      several large estates, including Rufach and the old royal palace of
      Isenburg. Arbogast founded or endowed several monasteries, including
      Surbourg, Shutteran, and possibly Ebersheimmunster (although Saint
      Odilia's father, Adalric, and Bishop Saint Deodatus of Nevers are the
      principal
      founders of this last one).

      Apparently Saint Arbogast retired before his death, because the year
      before Dagobert offered the see of Strasbourg to Saint Wilfrid, who was
      on his way to Rome to challenge the division of his see. When Wilfrid
      declined, Saint Florentius was consecrated.

      At Arbogast's request, he was interred on a mountain in the place set
      apart for the burial of criminals. The church of Saint Michael was built
      over his tomb and Saint Arbogast's Abbey rose nearby. His second
      successor translated his body with honour into the abbey church. A
      church was built in his honour in 1069, but it was destroyed by the
      Protestants in 1530. His relics were scattered during the Thirty Years
      War (Benedictines, Encyclopaedia, Farmer,
      Husenbeth).

      In art, Saint Arbogast is a bishop walking dryshod over a river,
      sometimes with Saint Sebastian (Roeder). He is the patron of Strasbourg,
      but his feast is also kept in several Swiss cantons (Farmer).

                Surbourg, Shutteran, and possibly Ebersheimmunster (although Saint
                Odilia's father, Adalric, and Bishop Saint Deodatus of Nevers are the
                principal founders of this last one).

                Apparently Saint Arbogast retired before his death, because the year
                before Dagobert offered the see of Strasbourg to Saint Wilfrid, who was
                on his way to Rome to challenge the division of his see. When Wilfrid
                declined, Saint Florentius was consecrated.

                At Arbogast's request, he was interred on a mountain in the place set
                apart for the burial of criminals. The church of Saint Michael was built
                over his tomb and Saint Arbogast's Abbey rose nearby. His second
                successor translated his body with honour into the abbey church. A
                church was built in his honour in 1069, but it was destroyed by the
                Protestants in 1530. His relics were scattered during the Thirty Years
                War (Benedictines, Encyclopaedia, Farmer, Husenbeth).

                In art, Saint Arbogast is a bishop walking dryshod over a river,
                sometimes with Saint Sebastian (Roeder). He is the patron of Strasbourg,
                but his feast is also kept in several Swiss cantons (Farmer).

                  St. Arbogast of Strasbourg, Bishop
                  ------------------------------------------------
                  Born in Aquitaine, France; died c. 678. Although the Irish and Scottish
                  both claim Arbogast as their own, the 13th-century Chronicle of Sens by
                  Richer and the Life of Saint Florentius, his successor, strongly support
                  the claim of Scotland. His acta, however, tell us that Arbogast was born
                  of a noble family in Aquitaine, France. His vita, attributed to Bishop
                  Utone of Strasbourg (died 965), tells us that Arbogast was living as a

                  Arbogast the see of Strasbourg. Shortly after his consecration, Arbogast
                  raised Dagobert's son Sigebert to life when he had been killed by a fall
                  from his horse. Many other miracles are ascribed to the saint, but he
                  was loved and famed for humility and wisdom.

                  Because of the king's affection for the bishop, the see was endowed with

                        from his horse. Many other miracles are ascribed to the saint, but he
                        was loved and famed for humility and wisdom.

                        Because of the king's affection for the bishop, the see was endowed with
                        several large estates, including Rufach and the old royal palace of
                        Isenburg. Arbogast founded or endowed several monasteries, including
                        Surbourg, Shutteran, and possibly Ebersheimmunster (although Saint
                        Odilia's father, Adalric, and Bishop Saint Deodatus of Nevers are the
                        principal founders of this last one).

                        Apparently Saint Arbogast retired before his death, because the year
                        before Dagobert offered the see of Strasbourg to Saint Wilfrid, who was
                        on his way to Rome to challenge the division of his see. When Wilfrid
                        declined, Saint Florentius was consecrated.

                        At Arbogast's request, he was interred on a mountain in the place set
                        apart for the burial of criminals. The church of Saint Michael was built
                        over his tomb and Saint Arbogast's Abbey rose nearby. His second
                        successor translated his body with honour into the abbey church. A
                        church was built in his honour in 1069, but it was destroyed by the
                        Protestants in 1530. His relics were scattered during the Thirty Years
                        War (Benedictines, Encyclopaedia, Farmer, Husenbeth).

                        In art, Saint Arbogast is a bishop walking dryshod over a river,
                        sometimes with Saint Sebastian (Roeder). He is the patron of Strasbourg,
                        but his feast is also kept in several Swiss cantons (Farmer).

                          St. Arbogast of Strasbourg, Bishop
                          ------------------------------------------------
                          Born in Aquitaine, France; died c. 678. Although the Irish and Scottish
                          both claim Arbogast as their own, the 13th-century Chronicle of Sens by
                          Richer and the Life of Saint Florentius, his successor, strongly support
                          the claim of Scotland. His acta, however, tell us that Arbogast was born
                          of a noble family in Aquitaine, France. His vita, attributed to Bishop
                          Utone of Strasbourg (died 965), tells us that Arbogast was living as a
                          recluse in the Sacred Forest (Heiligesforst or Haguenau) of Alsace when
                          King Dagobert took an interest in him. The holy hermit was often called
                          to court to share his wisdom with the king, who, about 630, forced on
                          Arbogast the see of Strasbourg. Shortly after his consecration, Arbogast
                          raised Dagobert's son Sigebert to life when he had been killed by a fall
                          from his horse. Many other miracles are ascribed to the saint, but he
                          was loved and famed for humility and wisdom.

                          Because of the king's affection for the bishop, the see was endowed with
                          several large estates, including Rufach and the old royal palace of
                          Isenburg. Arbogast founded or endowed several monasteries, including
                          Surbourg, Shutteran, and possibly Ebersheimmunster (although Saint

                          principal founders of this last one).

                          Apparently Saint Arbogast retired before his death, because the year

                              apart for the burial of criminals. The church of Saint Michael was built
                              over his tomb and Saint Arbogast's Abbey rose nearby. His second
                              successor translated his body with honour into the abbey church. A
                              church was built in his honour in 1069, but it was destroyed by the
                              Protestants in 1530. His relics were scattered during the Thirty Years
                              War (Benedictines, Encyclopaedia, Farmer, Husenbeth).

                              In art, Saint Arbogast is a bishop walking dryshod over a river,
                              sometimes with Saint Sebastian (Roeder). He is the patron of Strasbourg,
                              but his feast is also kept in several Swiss cantons (Farmer).
