Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Saint Ferr ol (Ferreolus) of Uz?'s (530 - January 4, 581) was bishop of Uz?'s and possibly bishop of N mes (Catholic Encyclopedia "N mes") (553-581). His Feast Day is January 4. He was born in Narbonne, apparently a grandson of Cloderic of the Ripuarian Franks. Bishops in Merovingian Gaul were ordinarily drawn from the highest levels of society. Ferr ol founded a Benedictine abbey, for which he wrote a rule that survives; it regards the work of transcription in the scriptorium as the equivalent of manual labor, since it charges that the monk "who does not turn up the earth with the plow ought to write the parchment with his fingers." As bishop of Uz s, Ferr ol devoted himself in particular to converting the Jews within his diocese.
