(Jan) 4. Dedication of Our Lady of Treves, in Germany, A.D. 746, by Hydolph, Archbishop of Treves. The Princess Genevieve, wife of Syfred,
palatine of Treves, and daughter of the Duke of Brabant, had this church built in a wood on the very spot where Our Lady appeared to her, and assured her that her innocence should be recognized. (Ad ditiones ad Molanum de Sanctis Belgicis.)
