Fridolin was born in a wealthy Irish family and became a missionary who travelled to France and settled in Poitiers, where he put great efforts in rebuilding the monastery of St. Hilary which had been destroyed by Vandals. Then, he decided to entirely dedicate his life to God by becoming a hermit on the Rhine, where he later built the abbey of Sackingen and became its first Benedictine abbot. He died in 538 and his relics are nowadays in Vienna.
