ST. HOSPITIUS, RECLUSE IN PROVENCE, COMMONLY CALLED SOSPIS

HE shut himself up in the ruins of an old tower near Villafranca, one league from Nice, in Provence, in a peninsula which is still called from him San-sospis. He girded himself of with an iron chain, lived only on bread and dates, and was honored with the gifts of prophecy and miracles. He died on the 21st of May, 681, on which day he is mentioned in the Roman Martyrology. See S. Greg. of Tours, Papebroke, Baillet, &c.
