Book of Saints – Henry of Upsala


(Saint) Bishop, Martyr (January 19) (12th century) An Englishman, a missionary to Sweden, where he worked under the protection of the holy King Saint Eric, and became Bishop of Upsala. His zeal in correcting a miscreant led to his being struck down somewhere in Finland by the dagger of an assassin (A.D. 1150), and to his being honoured as a Martyr.
