St Fridolin Biography

St Fridolin was born to the Irish nobility. He was an Evangelist. He was also a Benedictine monk at Luxeuil Abbey and at Poitiers, France. Fridolin received a vision of Saint Hilary of Poitiers in which he was shown the location of Hilary’s relics, which had been lost during a Vandal invasion.

He established them and built a chapel to house them. Fridolin’s oldest curriculum Vitae is dated to the 10th of the 11th century.
He built churches in Alsace which is found in Switzerland, and also in Burgundy. He was a missionary among the Alamanni in the upper Rhine.

Many thought that he was a roaming cattle thief and chased him away. Fridolin established the monastery in Sackigen, Baden (part of modern Germany, and served as its abbot.
