Blasius. Bishop of Sebafte in Armenia; who is reported to have discovered the art of woolcombing, and is therefore the patron Saint of the woolcombers, who in fome places (particularly at Norwich) honour his memory by an annual procession. On thefe occasions one of the trade represents the Bishop, being clothed in episcopal vestments, and carrying in his hand a pair of combs. He was put to death in his native city during the Dioclesian perfecution, by Agricolaus the president of it in the year 289.

Agatha. A Sicilian virgin of honourable family; suffered martyrdom at Catanea, under the Emperor Decius, the 5th of February 253. Quintinianus, the governor of the province, being enamoured of her beauty, endeavoured by threats to overcome her virtue; but not succeeding in his defign, he tortured her in the most horrid manner, and thrust her into a dungeon. After a short time, the Prætor sent for her again, intending to repeat his cruelties; but the holy virgin praying to be laved from further torture, immediately expired.

| Valentine. A bishop, or according to some ecclefiaftical writers, only a presbyter of the church. Under the Emperor Decius he was perfecuted for his religion ; and delivered into the custody of one Afterius, upon whose daughter he worked a miracle, and by these means converted the whole family to the Christian faith. After a year's imprisonment at, Rome, he was beheaded in the Flaminian Way (or road) near that city, A. D. 271. The custom of choosing Valentines on this festival is said by forme 10 have originated in the character of this faint, who was celebrated for his christian love and charity; by others, from the fact in natural his tory, of birds pairing on or about this day,

All which holds until the year of our Lord 1839 inclufive; after which year, u pace of these Golden Numbers will be to be changed, as is liercafter expreiled.

David. Archbishop, a native of Wales, and patron Saint of that country; uncle to Arthur, and son of Xanthus prince of Cardiganshire, by Meleria a nun. He was a man of deep learning for the times in which he lived; skilled in theology, and an able oppofer of the Pelagians. Twelve monafteries near St.David's were founded by him, which produced many great and pious men. At a synod held at Brevy in Cardiganshire againit Pelagianifm, St. David spoke with so much eloquence and ability, that the Archbithop of Carleon begged to resign his see to, a divine so much better qualified to fill it than himself; but it was only by the command of the synod that St. David could be prevailed on to accept it. He obtained permission to remove his see from Carleon to Menecia, now St. David's, which obtained that name from the circumstance of his residing there. Having filled this fee fixty-five years, and lived one hundred and forty-six, he died in 642, as full of honour as of years. He was buried in his own church of St. Andrew, which then changed its name for that of the deceased archbishop. Pope Calixtus II. about five hundred years afterwards canonized him.

+ Chad, or Cedde. Bishop of Lichfield, a subordinate dignity in the church from the Archbishoprick of York, which he had been compelled to accept of, by Egfrid king of Northumberland, in the lengthened absence of Archbishop Wilfrid. On Wilfrid's return Cedde religned the archiepiscopal throne to him, and was made Bishop of Lichfield by Wolphere king of Mercia, whom he is reported to have converted to Christianity; though Wolphere had previously in a fit of rage destroyed both his sons for attending the preaching of Cedde. He died March 2d, A. D. 672.

I Perpetua. A female of distinction, who sealed her faith by martyrdom in the fifth primitive perfecution under the Emperor Severus, A.D. 205. St. Austin (peaks of Perpetua in high terms of praise, informing us her conftancy and fortitude under suffering was so great, that the fuckled her ifant during her tortures. He adds that the anniversary of her martyrdom was an holy-day in his time.

Gregory the Great. Bishop of Rome; a prelate of great learning and equal piety. He was consecrated to his see in 590, and died in 604. Nothing diftinguished him more honourably than the opposition he made after bis elevation to the initre, to the title of Universal Bijhop, which the bishops of Rome have for many centuries affumed. His memory is endeared to this country by the circumstance of its having been converted to Christianity through his means. For this purpose he lent to Britain the celebrated Augustine, with forty attendant Monks, who in a short time happily atchieved their undertaking. He died in 604. His numerous works were printed at Rome, A. D. 1888, in eight volumes folio.

\ Edward, King of the Weft-Saxons. He came to the crown of his ancestors A. D. 975, when little more than twelve years of age. Hated by his step-mother Elfrida, because he stood between her own ton Etheldred and the throne, he foon fell a victim to her fury; for having called at CorteCastle in Dorsetshire to pay his respects to her, he was stabbed in the back by her order, whilft drinking a cup of wine on horseback at the gate. Pope Innocent IV. in 1245, appointed the day of his murder to be kept holy.

© Benedict. An Italian of good family, holy and learned, who instituted, A. D. 529, the famous order of Monks called after his name. His penances and mortifications were of the most painful nature. St. Gregory relates a notable miracle performed on his account, by which he was preserved un · injured in a fire made by the Goths in his cell, and in an oven heated to the greatest extremity, and stopped up close. He died March 21, A.D. 543.
