Book of Saints – Ust

main article for Saint UstArticle

(Justus) (Saint) (August 12) (Date unknown) This Saint, who gives its title to the church of Saint Just a few miles from Penzance, it is impossible satisfactorily to identify. Indeed it is likely that there were two or more Saints of the same name in Brittany, Wales and Cornwall. They would be of the fifth or at the latest of the sixth century. But all the accounts given of them are imperfect and unsatisfactory. We find Saint Just described sometimes as a hermit, sometimes as a Martyr, sometimes even as a Bishop.
