AIGULPHUS and OTHERS (Saints) Martys (September 3) (7th century) Monks of Fleury, an Abbey on the Loire. Saint Aigulphus was sent by his Abbot, Saint Mommolus, to rescue the relics of Saint Benedict from the ruins of Monte Cassino, where they were enshrined. He afterwards undertook a much needed reform of discipline in the Abbey of Lerins off the coast of Provence, but was resisted by a local chieftain or baron, who, in the end, caused him to be murdered with several of his fellow monks (A.D. 676).
