St. Vulganius (Wulganus, Vulmar) of Arras, Hermit
Died c. 704. Saint Vulganius was an Irishman, Welshman, or Englishman
(according to a manuscript at Lens he was born at
Canterbury) who crossed over to France and evangelized the Atrebati.
Finally he lived as a hermit at Arras, under the
obedience of the abbot of Saint Vedast. Some refer to him as a bishop.
A portion of his relics are kept at the abbey of Liesse, others at Lens
(near Douai) of which he is patron. A claim was made that his body
rested at Christ Church in Canterbury "in a chest on the beam beyond the
altar of Saint Stephen."
