The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
March 6
St. Fridolin, Abbot
 
HE was an Irish or Scottish abbot, who, leaving his own country, founded several monasteries in Austrasia, Burgundy, and Switzerland: the last was that of Sekingen, in an isle in the Rhine, now one of the four forest towns belonging to the house of Austria. In this monastery he died, in 538. He is the tutelar patron of the Swiss canton of Glaris, who carry in their coat of arms his picture in the Benedictin habit, though he was not of that order. See Molanus, Addit. ad Usuard. Pantaleon, Prosopographiæ Vir. Illustr. German, ad an. 502. King, in Calend. Wion, Lignum Vitæ, l. 3.  1
