Priest of Aquitaine, France, honored by Charlemagne. A parish priest, Goar became a hermit at Oberwesel, Germany, on the Rhine River. The local bishop, Rusticus of Trier, accused him falsely of sorcery, but Goar was cleared of the charge by King Sigebert I of Austrasia in Metz. Rusticus was deposed because of this attack and because he lived luxuriously. Goar was offered Rusticus' see but returned to his hermitage. Emperor Charlemagne later erected a church over St. Goar's former hermitage.
