Benedictine abbot. Born in Navarre, Spain, he joined the Benedictines at the abbey of Our Lady of Hirache and eventually was elected abbot, succeeding his uncle, Munius. Under his leadership, the monastery became quite influential in the religious life of the region. A miracle worker, Veremundus was much sought after as a royal counselor. He also was known for his deep religious fervor, his aid to the poor, and traditionally is reported as feeding three thousand at an abbey during a famine. He was also famous for his successful defense of the Mozarabic rite.
