Laudomar, St.


Hermit and abbot; d. Chartres, c. 590. Of the extant vitae, the shortest, first edited by Mabillon, was written probably by a disciple soon after the saint's death. Laudomar (Lomer or Launomar) received his early training from the priest Chirmirius. He was ordained and performed pastoral duties at Chartres for some years. He then withdrew to the solitude of La Perche, where he lived as a hermit. His reputation for sanctity and for the miracles ascribed to him attracted so many disciples and reverent admirers that he left La Perche and founded the monastery of Curbio (c. 570), becoming its first abbot. His relics were eventually taken to Blois, where the monastery named in his honor, Saint-Lomer, was built in 924.

Feast: Jan. 19.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • 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.
