(Saint) Prophet (May 1) (6th century B.C.) The second of the Greater Prophets, and the inspired writer of a Canonical Book of Holy Scripture, to which is appended another entitled the Lamentations of Jeremias the Prophet. The tradition concerning him is that at the age of fifty-five he was stoned to death at Taphnes in Egypt (B.C. 590) by the Jews, who shared his captivity. His Feast is celebrated by the Catholic Church, and with much splendour at Venice, where some of his relics are enshrined.
