Saint Tarsicia of Rodez
Who was Saint Tarsicia of Rodez?
Saint Tarsicia of Rodez (died ca 600) was the sister of Saint Ferreol of Uzes. She lived as a hermit in the Rouergue near Rodez, where she is still venerated by the Benedictines, with a feast day of 15 January. She was said in error to have been a granddaughter of Clotaire II, and more accurately a granddaughter of Clotaire I and, less likely, of St. Radegunda (Catholic Encyclopedia "Rodez"). Thus, they were two among numerous members of the Merovingian royal house whose posthumous veneration was encouraged by the Catholic Church.
