A propos de la "messe de saint Grégoire"

Abstract : An authentic of relics, a small piece of parchment, preserved in the treasury of the cathedral of Sens, bears the reference to a "mass of St. Gregory". But who is this Gregory? Gregory the Great's hagiography presents a Eucharistic miracle which inspired his iconography at the end of the Middle Ages. Since the Archbishop of Sens at the end of the eighth century, Beonred, was native of Northumbria like his cousin Alcuin, and because the hagiographic legend of the Mass of St. Gregory the Great originated in England, it is not impossible.
