Even though towns existed in Roman times, Liège was first mentioned in 558, when it was known as Vicus Leudicus. Saint-Lambert of Maastricht is credited with completing the Christianization of the region around the year 705, indicating that religious practices from antiquity had remained in some way until the early eighth century. Lambert was slain at Liège and was considered a martyr for his faith. Therefore Christian conversion may not have been ubiquitous. St. Lambert’s successor, Hubertus (later St. Hubert), erected a basilica near the bishop’s palace to enshrine his relics, which became the city’s original centre.
