Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Saint Agricius (ca. 260 - ca. 329, 333 or 335) was Bishop of Trier in the 4th century. A local 9th century tradition states that he had been Patriarch of Antioch, and that he was moved to the See of Trier by Pope Silvester I at the request of the Empress Helena. He was present at the Council of Arles in 314, and signed the acts immediately after the presiding bishop of that diocese. This act meant that, at least in the fourth century, Trier laid claim to the primacy of Gaul and Germany, a claim his successor Saint Maximin reinforced. Saint Athanasius, who came as an exile to Trier in 335 or 336, speaks of the large numbers of faithful whom he found there and the number of churches in the course of being built. The famous relics of Trier, the Holy Cost, the Nail of the True Cross, the Holy Rock of Christ, and the body of Matthias the Apostle are said to have been brought there by Agriciusshow more
