Acarius was a monk of Luxeuil and a pupil of Saint Columbanus around 594. While the date of his election is not known, it is assured that he was bishop in 627. He was a fervent furtherer of the apostle Saint Amand, but despite his influence could not avoid the banishment of the latter by King Dagobert I.
His memorial is Nov. 27.
