Book of Saints – Buithe


(Buite, Boethius) (Saint) (December 7) (6th century) A Scot who, after passing many years in Italy and elsewhere on the Continent, returned to his native country in company with Saint Codrus, and helped in the evangelisation of the Picts. From him it seems that Carbuddo (Castrum Buithii) takes its name. He is said to have prophesied the birth of Saint Columba, and to have died on the day that Saint was born (A.D. 521).
