Gregory of Tours, St. (540594)

Gregory of Tours, St., bishop of Tours, French theologian and historian, born at Clermont; was mixed up a good deal in the political strife of the time, and suffered not a little persecution; was the author of a “History of the Franks,” the earliest of French chronicles, entitling him to be regarded as the “Father of Frankish History”; his history contains a great number of valuable documents, though it is written in a barbarous style, and not unfrequently evinces a lack of moral sensibility (540594).
