LEUTFRED (LEUFROY), ST.
Founder of the abbey of La Croix–Saint–Ouen (later, La Croix–Saint–Leufroy) of Évreux; d. 738. Born of good parentage near Évreux, he studied at Chartres at the suggestion of St. ouen. After a short teaching career, he suddenly left his family and went to live at the monastery of Cailly under the direction of a hermit. Finally, having gone to Rouen, he put himself under the direction of the Irish monk Sidonius, from whom he received the monastic habit. He became the friend of St. Ansbert. After returning to his own country, he ruled the house he had founded until his death. In 851 his relics were translated for the first time; later during the 9th century, when the monks had to flee the Normans, they carried the relics to the church of saint–germain–des–prÉs (paris). In 1222 they were again brought to the La Croix–Saint–Ouen.
Feast: June 21.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
