The Story of Landericus
Not much is known about him, apart from a writing where he defends Saint Dionysius, although the context remains unsubstantiated.
Bishop Landericus founded the first real city hospital, near the church of Notre Dame and entrusted to the protection of St Christopher, which later became known as the Hotel-Dieu, which is still one of the main hospitals in Paris today.
Since 1171, his mortal remains have rested in the church of Saint Germain-l’Auxerrois.
