Benedictine missionary bishop. Born in Aquitaine, France, and raised in the local court, he studied under St. Sulpicius of Bourges and received ordination. Named the first abbot of Solignac, near Lirnoges by St. Eligius, he later headed the abbey of Cougnon, Luxembourg, and joined the court of King Sigebert II of Austrasia. Under the royal influence, he founded and served as the abbot of the double monastery of Stavelot, Belgium, and Malmedy, Belgium, in the Ardennes. Remaclus was appointed bishop of Maastricht, Netherlands, in 652, earning fame for his missionary zeal, austerities, and devout demeanor. Resigning after eleven years, he retired to Stavelot, where he died.
