Saints' Day of Sant Llop

July 29th

July 29th is the Saints Day of Sant Llop, who is known as Saint Lupus in English, and was born in Toul in France at the end of the 4th century into a religious Christian family.

Llop was the nephew of Germanus of Auxerre, the bishop of the town, his brother was the monk and early Christian writer Vincent of LĂ©rins, both of whom were also later canonised, and his wife Pimeniola, who he married in 419, was the sister of Bishop Hilary of Arles.

After seven years together Llop and Pimeniola decided to separate to lead a monastic life and Llop was soon called to become Bishop of Troyes.

Apparently, he was sent to Britannia in 429 to fight the Pelagian heresy and in 451 he was involved in the defence of Troyes against Attila the Hun, which led him to be accused of helping them and he was forced to flee the city.

He died in 479 and a century later in 570, the Merovingian Kings Guntram and Chilperic I came to a peace agreement at his tomb, which led him to being canonised.
