Saint Reinold (Rainald, Reynold),

monk at the Monastery of St Pantaleon in Cologne in Germany (+960)

January 7

Saint Reinold was a Benedictine monk who lived in the 10th century. He is a direct descendant of Charlemagne. He began his religious life by entering the Benedictine monastery of Pantaleon in Cologne, Germany, where he was appointed head of a building project occurring in the abbey. He often joined the stonemasons in their work, at times surpassing them. This led to the unsavoury event of his murder at the hands of the same stonemasons he worked with. Reinold was beaten to death with hammers and his body deposited into a pool near the Rhine. His body was later found through divine means, leading to the attribution of Reinold as the Patron of Stonemasons.
