Saint Ewald the DarkArticle

Martyrs (c.695), two priests, natives of Northumbria, England, who bore the same name, and were distinguished as the Black and the Fair. They went as missionaries to Saxony where they were the guests of the steward of a Saxon earl. The pagans, recognizing them as Christian priests, and fearing the earl’s conversion, murdered them and threw their bodies into the Rhine, whence they were miraculously retrieved. Their relics were preserved in the church of Saint Cunibert, Cologne. Feast, 3 October.
