Calendar of Scottish Saints – Saint Daganus, Bishop


A.D. (about) 609. This saint was honoured in Galloway. Saint Bede mentions him as a zealous opponent to the introduction into the Celtic Church of the Roman computation of Easter. This, however, does not militate against the sanctity of his life; for the Holy See had not yet definitely set the matter at rest, and he was therefore free to cling to the rite so long observed in his native country. His name occurs in the Dunkeld Litany.
