Wicterp of Augsburg, Bishop

Today, we commemorate Wicterp of Augsburg. According to Katherine Rabenstein:

Died 749. Saint Wicterp, abbot of Ellwangen, actively worked on the foundation of the abbeys at Füssen, Wessobrünn, and Kempten--all of which became famous in Medieval Germany. Eventually, Wicterp was elected to the bishopric of Augsburg (Benedictines).
