Saint Evette of Brittany

Also known as

  • Edwette
  • The Virgin with Three Crowns



Sister of Saint Demet of Plozévet. The siblings survived a shipwreck and washed up on the beach of Plozèvet in the bay of Audierne at Penhors, Brittany, France. There she became a hermitess. She became the target of fear, harassment and finally violence by local pagans who accused her of being a witch. The local pagan women planned to attack her, using iron forks that were used on the farms to shovel fuel into ovens; the night before their planned attack, all the forks vanished, and the women left Evette alone.
