Remigius

remi) (c.438-c.533. Bishop of Reims and “Apostle of the Franks.” Son of a count of Laon, he was proclaimed bishop of Reims at the age of twenty-two. In 496 he had his greatest achievement-the baptism of Clovis,* king of the Franks, and 3,000 of his subjects after the battle of Tolbiac. Various legends are associated with the relationship of Remigius and Clovis, e.g., that the bishop conferred on the king the power of “touching for the king's evil.” By his untiring efforts he also founded bishoprics at Arras, Cambrai, Laon, Térouanne, and Tournai, and sent missionaries to the Arians in Burgundy. His remains were transferred to the Abbey of St. Remi by Leo IX in 1049.
