Two counts, famed for their wealth and noble birth but with profane minds and ignoble habits, namely Granista and Vildigern, together with an Arian bishop called Athalocus and many others who shared their errors caused a serious disturbance in that district [i.e. Septimania]. Rising up against the Catholic faith they brought a huge host of Franks into the Gallic provinces to restore to power the depraved Arian faction, and, if possible, wrest the kingdom from the Catholic Reccared. In their attempt they slaughtered an innumerable host of clerics, monks, and Catholics of every kind. Their souls, purer than refined gold and more precious than any precious stone, were received as a burnt offering by our Saviour, the Lord Jesus and set among the companies of martyrs in the treasury of heaven.
