Lucian of Beauvais

Saint Lucian of Beauvais is a Christian martyr of the Catholic Church, called the "Apostle of Beauvais." He was killed in the 3rd century during the Diocletian persecution, although traditions make him a martyr of the 1st century instead. This was. Odo, bishop of Beauvais during the 9th century, was the first writer to designate Lucian as the first bishop of Beauvais; the foundation of the diocese of Beauvais is traditionally attributed to him. His Passio assigns him two disciples and Julian, who were decapitated with him on the hill of Montmille; the details of his life are unknown. As Hippolyte Delehaye writes, "To have lived amongst the Saviour's immediate following was...honorable...and accordingly old patrons of churches were identified with certain persons in the gospels or who were supposed to have had some part of Christ's life on earth."Tradition holds he came from a noble family of Rome. He was named "Lucius" like his father, but when he was converted to Christianity by Saint Peter himself, he took the name of Lucian.

As a young man, he preached in Italy and he was ordained bishop by Pope Clement I, who sent him to Gaul with Saint Denis and Rieul of Reims, among others, to preach there. He was freed by Christians there, he converted people in Pavia before arriving in Arles. Denis and Lucian continued towards Lutetia. Marcellinus and those accompanying him continued on to Spain. Denis remained in Lutetia while Lucian continued at the time known as Caesaromagus. At Beauvais, he acquired fame for his penances, he preached against the Roman gods. He lived in a house, considered to be the place now occupied by the collegiate church of Saint-Nicolas. Denis and Rieul visited him here. According to Rolandus, the author of the Acta Sancti Luciani, he retired to a mountain near the city, living as a hermit on grass and water. According to one account, he converted 30,000 people to Christianity, was assisted in this task by his 2 disciples; the assassins Latinus and Antor were sent by the Roman Emperor to kill him. They killed his disciples first and beat Lucian with rods slicing his head off.

His legend states that after Lucian was decapitated, he picked up his own head and walked towards the town of Beauvais. Having crossed the river Thérain at Miauroy, Lucian stopped within a quarter mile of Beauvais, died there, thus indicating to his followers that he wanted to be buried on that spot; this part of his legend thus makes Lucian one of the legendary cephalophores, whose number include his alleged companion, Denis. According to the legend, the angels themselves attended the funeral of the saint, according to local tradition, vermilion-colored rosebushes blossomed on the spot where Lucian's blood had run. Lucian's body was buried in the cemetery of Thil, his name occurred in the calendar of the Book of Common Prayer from an early date. At the end of the Christian persecutions, a church was built over his tomb, it was destroyed in the 5th century. Around 583, at the request of Dodo, bishop of Beauvais, Saint Evrou, Chilperic I ordered to be built a new basilica and monastery on the same site.

Dodo consecrated the church, dedicating it once again to Saints Lucian. Saint Evrou served as abbot of the monastery; the abbey was destroyed in 845 during the Norman invasions, but a new one was built in the 12th century, serving as a burial place for the cathedral canons. During the Middle Ages, a priory was built on the alleged site of their death, at Montmille, which became a place of pilgrimage during the Middle Ages. In 1261, the relics of Lucian and Julian were placed in a new reliquary by William of Grès, bishop of Beauvais; the translation took place in the presence of St. Louis IX, king of France, Theobald II, king of Navarre, much of the French nobility; the memory of this translation was celebrated in the abbey of Beauvais as the fête des Corps Saints. On January 5, 1791 the abbey was bought by a rich Parisian, Vicente Alterio; the liturgical objects were transported to the church of Notre-Dame du-Thil. The basilica and the monastery were demolished between 1795 and 1819. Of the monastery, only the round tower and part of the wall remain.

On November 20, 1793, Lucian's relics were tossed into a fire by Protestant extremists. In the Orthodox Church, Lucian is commemorated on June 3.

Norge, Virginia

Norge is an unincorporated community in James City County, United States. Norge is located on the old Richmond-Williamsburg Stage Road, U. S. Route 60 in modern times. Interstate 64 was built through the area in the 1970s, passes nearby. Exit 231 is labeled "Croaker-Norge" for the two small communities nearby; the new community of Norge was formally established beginning in 1904 in western James City County by Norwegian-Americans and other Scandinavians, with persons resettling from other places in North America joined by new immigrants. The word "Norge" is the Norwegian spelling of "Norway". Land at Norge was reasonably priced and offered rich farm land in a gentler climate than that of the northern and Midwestern states, where some of the immigrants had settled upon coming to America. For some years, prospective new residents were introduced to the area through promotional material sent out by Carl Martin Bergh, a fellow Norwegian-American with farming experience who had become a land agent for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway.

The Peninsula Extension of the railroad had been built through the area in 1881 to reach from the mountains of West Virginia to the coal piers on Hampton Roads at the new city of Newport News in adjacent Warwick County. Known as "Vaiden's Siding", the C&O built a railroad station at Norge in 1908; the Norge Depot offered. Although the railroad station was closed in 1969, C&O passenger service ended in 1971, Amtrak continues to serve the area with a stop at the Williamsburg, Virginia station. By 1909, Norge contained 25 buildings, including homes, churches and other businesses; some of the original buildings still stand today. The Norge Historic District was considered for the National Register of Historic Places in 1992, but there were owner objections; the landmarks include the following: Viking Hall: In 1908, a group of young men, who called themselves the "Vikings", purchased two lots on the corner of Richmond Rd. and Peninsula St. for $5.00 in order to construct a Town Hall. They wanted a centrally located place to be used for dances and parties as their parents had known in Norway.

Viking Hall provided a space for a variety of venues until the 1920s. The Norge Home Demonstration Club purchased the building, renovated it, renamed it the Norge Community Hall. To this day, the community and many local organizations continue to make extensive use of this hall. Bergh Hotel: This hotel was built at the turn of the 20th century, it was operated by Alfred Bergh to accommodate the new arrivals at the new community. The building today is thriving as a furniture store: since the 1980s it has been the "Williamsburg Wicker and Rattan". Kinde and Nesseth Store: Hans Kinde and John Nesseth opened Norge's first store in 1903, it was a general store. In 1904, the first Norge post office operated from this facility; the building was rebuilt in 1908 after a fire, still operates today as an antique store under the name "The Old Store in the Village". The farm home of Carl Bergh, built around 1904, is located at the end of Farmville Lane in Norge; the house was built on the remaining foundation of Farmville Plantation Manor House dating to the early 1800s, which had burned in the 1890s.

Other landmarks in Norge include the former Doll Factory, the former Williamsburg Soap and Candle Factory, Our Saviour's Evangelical Lutheran Church and the Norge Train Depot, listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.
