BEAN (Saint) Bishop (December 16) (11th century) A Scottish Saint, Bishop of Murtlach in Banff, from which See he was later transferred to Aberdeen. He is said to have been appointed to Aberdeen by Pope Benedict VIII about A.D. 1012. Another Saint Bean, also commemorated on December 16, was an Irish Bishop in Leinster. The Feast of Saint Bean of Murtlach is more properly kept on October 26, as in the old Aberdeen Breviary and the present Scottish Calendar.
