Saint Salvius (Salve, Sauve)
died 625. Bishop of Amiens in the north of France. His relics were enshrined in Montreuil in Picardy.
Saint Salvius (7th century), bishop. The identity of a famous relic, presented to Canterbury Cathedral by William the Conqueror, when Lanfranc rebuilt it after the fire in 1069, is a matter of dispute. Some identify this Salvius with the bishop of Amiens, who flourished under Theodoric II and died in 625, and whose relics were transferred to Montreuil (Picardy). Feast: 12 January.
