Book of Saints – Asicus


ASICUS (Saint) Bishop (April 27) (5th century) One of the earliest disciples of Saint Patrick in Ireland. The Apostle placed him at the head of the monastery and Diocese of Elphin, of which he is venerated as the Patron-Saint. He lived to a great age, dying after the year 500, having passed the evening of his life as a hermit. He is famous for his extraordinary skill as a metal-worker, and some remarkable specimens of his handiwork yet remain.
