November 3
St. Papoul, or Papulus, Priest and Martyr
 
HE is mentioned in the Acts of St. Saturninus, the first bishop of Toulouse, whose colleague he was in preaching the faith in the southern parts of France in the third century. The crown of martyrdom was the recompence of his zeal, which he received about the beginning of Dioclesian’s reign, in the Lauragam (a small territory in Languedoc,) nine leagues from Toulouse. A famous church and abbey was built there, and much augmented by Charlemagne, which was secularized and made an episcopal see by John XXII. in 1317, being now a considerable town in Languedoc, called St. Papoul. The saint’s relics are kept in a rich shrine in a cathedral of Toulouse. See Bosquet. Histor. Eccl. Gallic. l. 3, c. 29. Tillem, t. 3, p. 302.  1
