About Ferreolus de Uzès

He was was Bishop of Uzès and perhaps of Nîmes. He was banished from his see in 555, for having lived in too friendly relations with the Jews of Septimania. His feast day is January 4.

Wikipedia's article on [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uzès Uzès] states the following: "The civilized and tolerant urban life of 5th-century Uzès contrasted with the Frankish north. Jews were settled there as early as the 5th century. Saint Ferréol, Bishop of Uzès, admitted them to his table and enjoyed their friendship. On this account complaint was made of him to King Childebert I, whereupon the bishop was obliged to change his attitude toward the Jews, compelling all those who would not become Christians to leave Uzès. After his death (581) many who had received baptism returned to Judaism."
