Book of Saints – Bridget and Maura


BRIDGET and MAURA (Saints) (July 13) (5th century) Venerated as two daughters of a Scottish chieftain, martyred in Picardy in the fifth century while on a pilgrimage to Rome. The details have not been satisfactorily ascertained. Saint Louis of France had a great devotion to Saints Bridget and Maura. We have also two other pairs of holy sisters: Maura and Britta, mentioned by Saint Gregory of Tours; and Baya and Maura, whose names appear in the ancient Scottish Kalendars. How far all these are distinct personages is uncertain.
