|St. Evurtius, Bishop of Orleans, Confessor|
|HE flourished in the reign of Constantine the Great, and died about the year 340. His name is famous in the ancient western Martyrologies, but his history is of no authority, as Stilting complains. Three translations have been made of his relics. A famous abbey at Orleans bears his name. See Gallia Christ. Nov. t. 8, p. 1573, and Stilting.|| 1|
