SaintDenis, also known as Denise, Dionysius, or Dennis is a Christiansaint, bishop of Paris, martyr, and a patron saint of France.
Gregory of Tours simply states of Denis that he was bishop of the Parisii and was martyred by being beheaded by a sword: (Beatus Dionysius Parisiorum episcopus diversis pro Christi nomine adfectus poenis praesentem vitam gladio immente finivit, [History of the Franks I, 30]).
