Book of Saints – Hugh


(Saint) Martyr (August 27) (13th century) The child, nine years of age, whom the Jews were accused of having barbarously tortured and put to death at Lincoln in hatred of Christianity (A.D. 1255). King Henry III conducted the judicial investigation which resulted in the confession of their guilt, made by the murderers. Many miracles justified the popular veneration of Saint Hugh as truly a Martyr of Christ.
