Book of Saints – Britta and Maura


BRITTA and MAURA (Saints) Virgins (July 13) (5th or 6th century) Two Saints mentioned by Saint Gregory of Tours. They are chiefly venerated in the Diocese of Beauvais in France, and are traditionally reputed to have been Princesses of Northumbria or of Scotland. Some assert that they were put to death for their Faith. Britta is a name variously spelled, and is, it would seem, a form of Brigid or Bridget; but all is very uncertain. (See Saints Breaca and Maura.)
