Saint’s Biography

Saint Tillo of Solignac was born in 610 AD in Saxony (in modern Germany). He was kidnapped by robbers and taken to the Netherlands, and from there sold as a slave to Gaul. There he was bought free and baptized by the Saint Eligius of Noyon (c. 588-660), who was then still in Paris, and he trained Tillo to be a priest. When Eligius died Tillo was appointed a priest. Later he retired to become a hermit at Solignac.
