    Maternus (saint, feast day: September 14th, † around 328) was the third bishop of Trier according to Trier's list of bishops and is mentioned as the first historically witnessed bishop of Cologne in 313 and 314 as a participant in councils in Rome and Arles. He is considered the patron saint of fever, infectious diseases and the flourishing of grapevines. According to the Ecumenical Encyclopedia of Saints, Maternus means “the motherly”. The family name Mattern is derived from the holy Maternus.Source: Wikipedia
