Lupus, called in French "Loup", was born at Toul, Gaul. He married the sister of St. Hilary of Arles, but after six years of marriage they parted by mutual agreement. He gave his wealth to the poor, entered Lerins Abbey under St. Honoratus, and about 426 was named Bishop of Troyes. In 429, he accompanied St. Germanus of Auxerre to Britain to combat Pelagianism there, and on his return, devoted himself to his episcopal duties. When Attila invaded Gaul, he persuaded him in 453 to spare Troyes, though he took Lupus with him as hostage. When Attila was defeated at Chalons, Lupus was accused of helping him escape and was forced to leave Troyes. He lived as a hermit for two years and then was allowed to return to Troyes. Many scholars doubt the veracity of the account of the Attila incident. His feast day is July 29th.
