Herewith a link to an earlier (2010) 'Saints of the day' for 1. November (including All Saints; St. Caesarius of Terracina; St. Benignus of Dijon; St. Austremonius; St. Vigor):

Further to All Saints:

An illustrated, German-language page on Kloster Allerheiligen in the Swiss cantonal capital of Schaffhausen, with views of its originally late eleventh-century church, now Schaffhausen's Evangelisch-reformierte Pfarrkirche Allerheiligen:

NB: Those exterior apse views were taken from the harbor, looking across the Via Statuti Marittimi. The entrance to this church, on the Via Ognissanti, is neoclassical.

The All Saints illumination in an early fifteenth-century missal for the Use of Tours (Tours, Bibliothèque municipale, ms. 185, fol. 251r):

Further to Caesarius of Terracina:

For an expandable view of Caesarius as depicted in the later twelfth-century mosaics of the Cappella Palatina in Palermo, go to <http://squinchpix.com/dictionary.html>, type in <Cesarius> (without the brackets; note the spelling), and hit FIND.

In that earlier post's notice of this saint, the link to the English-language account of his church (the basilica di San Cesario) in San Cesario sul Panaro (MO) no longer functions.

The page at Italia nell'Arte Medievale on the aforesaid church:

Further to Benignus of Dijon:

In 2010 christopher crockett added an informative post on the cathedral of Dijon's since destroyed eleventh-century rotunda:

In that post, the first link (to a page at wikipedia.de) no longer functions. Use this instead:

Further to Vigor:

http://www.valdesaire.net/?id=picasa-5556523094760381137

In the same notice, the third link to English-language accounts of the Church of St Vigor at Fulbourn (Cambs) no longer functions.


Today (1. November) is also the feast day of:

Audomarus (d. ca. 670?). We know about this saint (in French and English usually Omer; in both languages also Audomar) chiefly from his early ninth-century Vita (BHL 763). This makes him a native of an Aurea Vallis said to be near Constantia (some have thought Konstanz, but Coutances seems a better bet) who became a monk of Luxeuil under its abbot St. Eustasius (r. ca. 612-629), who in the reign of king Dagobert (Dagobert I, r. in Austrasia 623-634) after consecration by St. Acharius of Noyon served, not without miracles and with his seat at Thérouanne, as a missionary bishop and _de facto_ evangelist in what is now the Pas-de-Calais.

Aided by three monks who had come from his native region, Sts. Mummolinus, Ebertramnus, and Bertinus, Audomarus also oversaw the foundation in his diocese of a monastic community on an estate called Sithiu (the abbey, dedicated to St. Peter, was later called Saint-Bertin; its town, Saint-Omer, is named for Audomarus). Late in life Audomarus lost his eyesight but carried on as before. He was buried with great honor in the monastery church at Sithiu where Bertinus was abbot. Post-mortem miracles confirmed his sanctity. Thus far Audomarus' Vita, which appears to have been written for the abbey of Saint-Bertin.

A French-language page on Audomarus with views of illuminations in an eleventh-century copy of his Vita (Saint-Omer, Bibliothèque de l'agglomération de Saint-Omer, ms. 698):
