Biography of St. Giles:
Giles was born in a noble family in Athens and strived after a pious lifestyle, this is why he left for France. At first, he lived in the wilderness near the mouth of the Rhone river and then moved near the river Gard before finally setting in the diocese of Nimes. St. Giles became famous because of his miracles and even the king wanted to be in touch with him. He sent out some hunters to find him, who accidentally hit Giles with an arrow instead of deer. Giles founded a monastery which later accepted the rule of St. Benedict. He died about the year 720
