Bourrier, André Marie Lazare

(171 words)

Author(s): Bischof, Franz Xaver
[German Version] (Aug 31, 1852, Marseille – Sep 11, 1932, Marseille). The son of a tailor, in 1875 priest in the archbishopric of Marseille, he resigned his priestly office in 1895 and left the Catholic Church. After studies in Protestant theology in Paris (Baccalaureat in 1897), in 1897 he became a Reformed pastor in Sèvres-Bellevue (near Versailles).

His mouthpiece was the periodical, Le Chrétien Français (founded in 1897 and edited together with …

Christine, Saint

(107 words)

Author(s): Bischof, Franz Xaver
[German Version] (of Bolsena; feast day Jul 24). Her cult has been attested since the 4th century in the catacombs of Bolsena (Latium) named after her, and she is portrayed on a mosaic in San Apollinare Nuovo (Ravenna). A legendary Greek passio (first attested in an Oxyrhynchos papyrus from the 5th cent.) and other, probably dependent, sources such as the Martyrologium Hieronymianum, which mention a martyr Christine from Tyre (Lebanon) on the same day, are at odds with this evidence.

Expeditus, Saint

(475 words)

Author(s): Bischof, Franz Xaver | Betz, Hans Dieter
[German Version] I. General – II. Significance in the Voodoo Cult – III. Iconography I. General Saint Expeditus was a martyr whose existence and name are questionable. The Martyrologium Hieronymianum mentions him under the date Apr 19 as belonging to a group of Armenian martyrs about whom nothing further is known. His veneration can only be demonstrated from the 18th century on, in the 19th century primarily in Italy and France, sometimes in forms against which the Holy See intervened. According to Delehaye, Expeditus is probably a misspelling of Elpidius. Franz Xaver Bischof Bibliog…
