Three years St. Benedict lived like this, and then one sunny Easter morning God made known St. Benedict's secret to a certain holy man who lived in those parts, and told him to go to the cave and take St.

In the vita, Guthlac is shot with an arrow by the devil (c), bound and dragged through a thicket by demons (c), beaten with iron whips (c) and tossed in the air on the points of demonic spears (c.

Godric of Finchale A personage quite as interesting, though not as famous, as Cuthbert or Guthlac, is St. Godric; the hermit around whose cell rose the Priory of Finchale.

Antony, St. Bartholomew appeared to Guthlac and rescued him by Author: Matthew Gabriele. Columba, like St. David and St. Cadoc of Wales, and like many great Irish saints, is a prince and a statesman as well as a monk.

He is mixed up in quarrels between rival tribes. He is concerned, according to antiquaries, in three great battles, one of which sprang, according to some, from Columba's own misdeeds.

92) is mentioned by John the Revelator () as having been martyred in Pergamum “where Satan’s throne is.” Pergamum (also Pergamon) was a Greek city in western Anatolia about sixteen miles inland from the Aegean Sea. Apparently at one time it was the capital of a kingdom named after itself, but.

THE LIFE OF ST. BENEDICT, INTRODUCTION: FOOTNOTES 1 The precise date of Benedict's death is unknown, but it was apparently around the middle of the sixth century. 2 Gregory the Great, Dialogues, ed.

In the Bollandists' list of hagiographical texts, BHL, it is numbered Guthlac was ‘walking with Christ’ like Arsenius, Macarius and Antony.
