Bishop Everigisil

Period of office 590

According to legend, Bishop (Evergislus or Eberigisil) was born in Tongern, where he was also buried after having been killed during a robbery. Later his bones were transferred to Cologne. Gregory of Tours reports that Everigisil mediated conflicts in a convent in Poitiers in 590. In earlier times he was occasionally venerated as a saint. He is the patron of the Cologne painters' guild.
