Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Saint Hilary of Arles (c. 403-449) was a bishop of Arles. In early youth he entered the abbey of L rins then presided over by his kinsman Honoratus (Saint Honor ), and succeeded Honoratus in the bishopric of Arles in 429. Following the example of St Augustine, he is said to have organized his cathedral clergy into a "congregation," devoting a great part of their time to social exercises of ascetic religion. He held the rank of metropolitan of Vienne and Narbonne, and attempted to exercise the sort of primacy over the church of south Gaul, which seemed implied in the vicariate granted to his predecessor Patroclus of Arles (417). Hilarius deposed the bishop of Besan on, Chelidonus, for ignoring this primacy, and for claiming a metropolitan dignity for Besan on. An appeal was made to Rome, and Pope Leo I used it to extinguish the Gallican vicariate (AD. 444).
