October 868. " But we also know that hisbody was transported from Nantes to Angers in 878 during the Norman invasions and there was kept in a shrine gilt, until the Revolution, in the church of the Benedictines of St Aubin. However, his skull was worshiped in the seventeenth century in the cathedral of Nantes. Also Borderie has he seen in this duality skulls "an irrefutable proof of the duality of the two characters."
Saint Clair is invoked for healing eye and ask for good weatherfor crops.
A Réguiny until 1890, plunged the head of the saint in the water with a pool and people of blindness or blindness used this holy water to wash the eyes.
A Latin hymn is sung 1400 to implore the grace of the Holy order to obtain the cure of blindness, "celebrate by pious hymns / Saint Clair gives clarity to the blind."
It is celebrated on October 10.
