Owen race, and by his mother from the Dalriadian stock, and through
her nearly related to S. Comgall, was born January 3, 642. He
received his early training at his kinsman's famous monastery of Ban-
gor, where he became abbot, or rather, perhaps, prior. In 671, hav-
ing attained his twenty-ninth year, he came to Scotland. Two years,
probably spent in choosing a place of abode, having elapsed, he settled

Pallad'ms, bishop and confessor, July 6, 430. Ad Scotos (in Ire-
land) in Christum credentes oi'dinatur a Papa Gelestino et primus Ejyis-
cojnis mittitur: He was ill received there, near Wicklow, when com-
bating Pelagianism, and removed to Scotland, where he founded the
church of Fordvin (or to which, perhaps, his relics were brought by
S. Ternan), and where "Padie Fair" and "Padies Well" are named
from him. It is said that he died at Longforgan.

Patricius, bishop and confessor, March 17, 493. Son of Calphurnius,
a decu7-io or magistrate, and of Conkessa, said to be sister or niece of
S. Martin of Tours. Kirk Onchan, in Isle of Man, is named after S.
Concha, mother of S. Patrick. He was born at Kilpatrick on Clyde,
and called Succat = Succoth, the name of a neighbouring estate. At
sixteen, Patricius was carried off to Ireland by pirates, and sold to
a chief, Michul of Antrim, whom he served six years, when he
escaped to Scotland ; then went to S. Germanus of Auxerre for forty,
more probably four, years' study. After becoming monk, with his
uncle, S. Martin, he visited Rome, was sent to Ireland, where he
laboured sixty years, consecrating 365 churches and bishops, and
ordaining 300 — some say 3000 — presbyters. Writings of Patricius
are his ' Confession ' and letter to Caroticus, Caradoc, or Ceretic
Guledig, from whom the kings of Alcluith, Patrick's birth-land, were
descended. His churches in Scotland are sixteen, of which three are
in Muthill, where are also two " S. Patrick's Wells " — memorials of the
ministry of S. Fergus, who dedicated these to his master in Ireland.
The 'New Statistical Account,' Perth, p. 313, says: "The inhabi-
tants of Muthill until very lately (i.e., about 1835) held S. Patrick's
name in so high veneration, that on his day neither the clap of the
mill was heard nor the plough seen to move in the furrow." Other
churches are — Kilpatrick in Arran ; Kirkpatrick, Closeburn ; Kil-
patrick, near Dumbarton ; Dalpatrick in Lanarkshire ; Dalpatrick
in Crieff; Temple Patrick in Tiree ; Ardpatrick in Kilberry, Kin-
tyre ; Dalziel, with S. Patrick's Well ; Kilpatrick in Kilviceuen ;
Kilpatrick in Torosay ; Kilpatrick or Kilpeter in Uist ; Kirkcaldy.
Besides the 'Life of Todd,' see the recent lively book of Professor
Stokes, 'Ireland and the Celtic Church,' sec. ii.-iv. Also Anderson,
i. 199-204.

Peyidus, Rule, Riagail of Muic-inis in Loch Derg, October 17.
According to the legend, in 360 Regulus flourished at Patras in
Greece, custodier of relics of S. Andrew. Sailing with the relics,
Regulus was wrecked at Muckross ( = Boar's point) or Kilrymont,
where, in 369, he erected a cross, then visited Forteviot, and met the
Pictish King Hungus's three sons — viz., Owen, Nectan, and Finguine.
The king gave a grant of land at Kilrimont, or "the Boar's Chase."
Regulus also dedicated a church at Monifieth. The sum of Skene's
analysis of this legend (Celtic Scotland, ii. 268) is that the historic
Regulus of Muicross is no Greek, but an Irish monk, whose Scottish
visit was associated with the visit of Columba to Drumceat in 573,


and who belongs to a Columban church founded among those which
Cohimba established among the Southern Picts during the last years
of his life, and at the same time when Cainnech of Achaboe had his
hermitage there. Dr M'Lauchlan (Early Scottish Church, p. 278),
with whom agrees Skene, ii. 2/1-277, accounts for S. Andrew thus :
Bishop Acca of Hagustald or Hexham took refuge in 731 in the terri-
tory of the Picts. S. Andrew was venerated at Hexham, and relics
seem to have been carried by the bishop ; and the Pictish king,
Angus, instituted a foundation in fulfilment of a vision and vow
previously at Athelstaneford, to dedicate a tenth of his inheritance
to S. Andrew.

Ronan, or Rowan, bishop and confessor under King Maldwin,
February 7, 737, according to Adam King's Kalendar. He was of
Kilmaronen, or Kilmaronoc, in Lennox. Other churches are — Kil-
maronag, in Muckairn ; Teampull Ronan of Ness, in Lewis ; another
in lona, the parish church of which is at Port Ronain. Strowan, in
Monzievard = S. Ronan, and has Ronan pool and bell. Tempull
Rona, in North Rona isle, sixty miles north of Lewis, is described
in Muir's 'Ecclesiastical Notes,' p. 93; also in Anderson, i. 114.
The saint died in 737, when Abbot of Kingarth. See Skene, ii.

Another Ronan is in the Aberdeen Breviary under May 22, who
is in Irish Kalendars called Ronan Finn, being grandson of King

Servanus or Serf, bishop and confessor, July 1. Said to be son of
Alma, daughter of a Pictish king ; was ordained by Palladius ; dwelt
at Culross in a monastery, where his most famous scholar was Kenti-
gern. Palladius died in 432 and Kentigern in 603, so that the same
man could not in an ordinary lifetime be ordained by Palladius and teach
Kentigern. To escape this difl&culty the Aberdeen Breviary makes
tii'O S. Serfs. Better abandon the earlier, retaining Culross, however,
as a monastery, and accepting the founder (name unknown) as
ordained by Palladius. Then we have S. Serf of history as contem-
porary with Abbot Adamnan of Zona, and Bishop Sedulius of Strath-
clyde, labouring in the Gospel at Dunning, Airthrey, Tillicoultry,
Alva, Culross, and especially Portmoak ; monkish legend afterwards
giving the saint's good words and deeds an exaggerated and partly
ridiculous garb of miracle. Churches in addition to the above-named
are — Monzievaird, Criech, Dysart, S. Serf's in Redgorton. Cere-
monies of S. Serf's day at Culross are described in ' Historians of
Scotland,' v. 325.

Tcdaricanus, Tallorcan, or Tallore, bishop and confessor, October
30. Of the race of the Picts ; was ordained by Pope Gregory, and
laboured in the north of Scotland. Churches — Fridressor, Fordyce,
Kiltarlity or Kiltalorgy, Glentarken, Kiltarraglan on Loch Portree in
Skye. M'Lauchlan, ' Early Scottish Church,' p. 364.

Ternan, Terrenanus, or Tigh-Earnan, bishop and confessor, June
12, 431. Was high-bishop of the Picts, and called Torannan, or Mo-
Thoren, in Ireland ; of noble birth, in the province of Myrnia or
Mearns ; baptised by Palladius and opposed by Convecturius, whom


he afterwards baptised. Ternan was a contemporary and friend of
S. Maeharius. His bell, called Ronnecht, was still at Banchory-
Ternan at the Reformation. He was buried at Leconium, probably
an old name of Banchory. Churches — besides Banchory-Ternan,
Slains, Arbuthnott, Kiltearn (?) ; Findon in Banchory-Devenic has a
chapel and well of S. Ternan.

Thenew, July 18, 514. Mother of S. Mungo and daughter of a
king of Laudonia (see S. Kentigern) ; afterwards lived and was

stultified as St Enoch's. The Fair of Glasgow is in her honour.

Triduana, virgin, October 8, called also Trolhrena, or Treddles.

duan's Fair ; Kintradwell in Loth, in Caithness ; S. Tredwall's
chapel in Papa Westray.

Vigean, or Fechin, January 20, 664. Abbot of Fore in Westmeath ;
born at Leyney in Connaught ; trained by S. Nathi, and friend of S.
Mund ; died near Arbroath. Legend attaches several miracles to his
bachul or staff. Churches, besides several in Ireland, are — S. Vigeans ;
Ecclefechan, or Ecclesia sancti Fechani, now in Hod dam.

Voloc, Woloc, Macwoloc, January 29, 724. He was Frelchu, the
twelfth Abbot of lona, 717-724. In the time of Voloc or Fselchu, the
Columban brethren were driven by King Nectan out of Pictavia.
The improvement of morals and of the rites of the Church were the
aims of Voloc. Churches — Dunnet in Caithness, Logic near Dun-
blane, Logie in Mar, Dunmeth in Glass in Strathbogie.

Winnoc or Guinoche, abbot, Lochwinnoch ; also honoured in Buchan.

Wynnin, January 21, 579. Called in Wales Gwynnin = Finan. He
is S. Finan of Moville in Down, who is identical with S. Frigidianus
of Lucca. He died in Ireland, and was buried at Kilwinning.

Holywood in Dumfriesshire.

Yarchcdd, Yrchard, or Erchad, bishop, August 24. Was contem-
porary with Kentigern, and said to have been ordained by Pope
Gregory the Great (590-604). The name of Yarchald seems asso-
ciated with most of the Kincardines. Kincardine O'Niel, Kincar-
dine in Ross, two miles from Bonar Bridge, Kincardine in Abernethy
on Spey, Kincardine in Menteith (where, however, S. Lolan is named),

See 'Historians of Scotland,' v. Ixxxvii. 355.


Modern almanacs, in noting the day and year of birth or
death of eminent artists, poets, engineers, or soldiers, or in
showing when grouse - shooting or salmon-fishing begin and



close, are only secular copies of the old Churcli Kalendars,
which dealt with saints and sacred seasons. Bishop Forbes
well says : "A Kalendar is in a sense an abridgment of
ecclesiastical history in general, and where it exhibits local
peculiarities, it sums up the result of the most remarkable
fruits of Christianity in the country to which it belongs."
Knox's 'Liturgy' of 1564: had a short Kalendar prefixed,
which gave the dates of the chief fairs throughout Scotland,
which were then more prominently, as they still partly are,
distinguished by the name of the saint's day. All fairs, or
ferice, were originally of ecclesiastical origin, being the day of
dedication of each important church to its patron saint. The
Kalendar here given is compiled from those of the Aberdeen
Breviary of 1550, and of Adam King of 1588 (reprinted by
Bishop Forbes), from Alban Butler's ' Lives of the Saints ' and
from Knox's ' Liturgy.'
