The Roman soldier who laid down his weapons and refused to fight after converting to Christianity. He became the bishop of Rouen, traveling on extensive preaching tours to establish the Church in France. He earned a reputation as a peacemaker, and was called upon to settle disputes as far away as Britain. “I inspired the wise with love of peace. I taught it to the teachable.
