medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Bernard Gui wrote in his Flores Chronicorum that Saint Martial had a
vision of Christ commanding him to dedicate the church in Poitiers to
Saint Peter in the first century, which Bernard Gui also states was
confirmed by Saint Hilary later.  I would be interested in hearing if
there is something earlier than the fourteenth century for this though.

"Peter of Poitiers (d. 1115)  Peter became bishop of Poitiers in 1087,
> > after serving as archdeacon."

The cathedral of Poitiers is dedicated to Saint Peter, probably the Big
Guy. 
I wonder though if this bishop had anything to do with the cathedral
name or 
if the "vocable" was settled long before his time...
