|Venerated in||Roman Catholic Church|
Saint Dalmatius of Rodez (French: Saint Dalmas, Dalmace) was a bishop of Rodez from 524 to 580. He is considered by the Catholic Church to have suffered at the hands of Amalaric, who was a follower of Arianism. Dalmatius’ testament requested from Childebert II that the bishop’s successor not be a stranger to the see, or covetous, or married. His successor should be someone who spent all of his time praising God. His feast day is November 13.
