Ninth bishop of Paris, France. Chaired the Council of Paris in 360 – 361 which recognized the edicts of the Council of Nicaea in 325. Supported Saint Genevieve. Legend says that there was a dragon in Paris which was devouring women of “ill repute”; Marcel defeated it by striking it with his bishop‘s crozier.
