(Saint) Abbot (March 6) (7th century) An Irish Saint of noble descent who, protected by powerful rulers in France, founded monasteries in the East of that country, settling at last at Seckingen, near Basle in Switzerland, where he closed a long and useful life, and where many miracles were wrought at his tomb. It is reported that while at Poitiers he pointed out the till then unknown tomb of Saint Hilary. He probably flourished in the seventh century, but there is much controversy on the subject.
