Saint Amatus was a Benedictine abbot and hermit. He was born to a noble family in Grenoble, France, and was put in the Maurice Abbey as a child. After becoming a Benedictine monk, he became a hermit.
He went to Luxeuil in 614. In Luxeuil he converted a former Count Palatine from the court of King Theodebert II, the Frankish noble St. Romaric. St. Romaric founded with Amatus a dual monastery for men and women at Remiremont Abbey. This was on land that had been in St. Romaric's possession since his days as a count palatine. St. Amatus was its first abbot.
Amatus died in 627. His memorial day is September 13.
Amatus has created variations of the name 'Aimee'
