Salvius of Albi
He came from a powerful family within the church, which contributed many bishops in the south of France through the end and fall of the Roman Empire. He was a distant relation of Gregory of Tours who wrote his life. He was also a relative of Saint Didier of Cahors.
As bishop he intervened with the powerful Chilperic I and stayed in Albi to take care of his flock during a famine and a plague epidemic to which he succumbed in 584.
He was buried in his monastery but his remains were later moved to the church of Saint-Salvi in Albi. Their exact location is now lost because of renovation in the 18th century. After this he was venerated in the city and was later declared to be a saint.
