k Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 9, 2015 i . Saint Leodegar by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Saint Leodegar, known as Saint Leger, was born in the year 615. He was the son of a high- ranking Burgtmdian nobleman, Bodilon, Count of Poitiers and Paris. His mother was Sigrada of Alsace, who later became a nun at Sainte-Marie de Sois- sons. He spent his childhood in Paris at the court of Clotaire II, King of the Franks, and was educated at the palace school. When he was older, he was sent to Poitiers to study at the cathe- dral school under his maternal uncle, Desiderius, Bishop of Poitiers. At the age of 20, his uncle made him an archdeacon. Around 650, after he became a priest, and with the bishop's recommendation, Leger was made abbot of the monastery of St. Maxentius in Poitou, where he introduced the Benedictine rule. He served Queen Regent St. Bathildis and helped her gov- ern when Clovis II died in 656, and was named bishop of Autun in 663. As bishop, he reconciled the differing factions that had torn Autun apart, introduced reforms, fortified the town, and was known for his concern for the poor. On the death of Clotaire ill, he supported young Childeric II for king against his brother Thierry, who had been backed by Ebroin, mayor of the palace. Ebroin was exiled to Luxeuil and became a bitter enemy of Leger, who became Childeric's adviser. When Leger denounced the marriage of Childeric to his uncle's daugh- ter in 675, he was aiTested at Autun and banished to Luxeuil. Childeric was murdered in 675, and his successor, Theodoric Ill, restored Leger to his See. Ebroin was also re- stored as mayor of the palace after he had the incumbent Leudesius murdered and per- suaded the Duke of Champagne and the bishops of Chalons and Valence to attack Auttm. To save the town, Leger surrendered. Ebroin had him blinded, his lips cut off, and his tongue pulled out. Not satisfied, several years later, he convinced the King that children had been murdered by Day M.P. & Co.
