a Norf, That Ecclus. xxv. is to be read only to verfe

xxx. only to verfe 18; and Ecclus. xlvi. only to verse 20.

13; Ecclus.

Leonard, a Frenchman, bishop of Lemilin. He obtained the ene viable privilege from King Clovis, of liberating every prisoner whom lie went to see; and exercised his claim by visiting all those who were confined on account of religion, or any cause which had not involved crime in it. In consequence of this circumstance of his history, he has always been considered as the tutelary faint of prisoners. He died A. D. 500.

+ St. Martin. This Saint's name and history occurred under the month of July. This day is called also, Martinmasday, and vulgarly corrupted to Martlemas-day. Brand quotes the following remarks on this fealt

, from an ancient Romish Calendar in his poffeffion. “ The Mar. " tinalia, a genial feaft; wines are tasted of, and drawn from the lees. “ The Vinalia, a feaft of the ancients removed to this day: Bacchus is " the figure of Martin."

I Britius, or Brice, bishop of Tours; the successor of Martin in that sec. Being charged with an intrigue with his laundress, and with sorcery, in having worked a miracle to confite the calumny, he was driven from his bishopric, and remained at Rome for seven years. He was then restored to his dignity, and died in it, A. D. 444. The famous Gregory of Tours, the historian, lụcceeded him.

Machutus, or Macloius, bishop of a city in Bretagne, from him called St. Maloes. His name is of great repute with the Roman Catholics, from the number of miracles he is taid to have wrought. He died in the be ginning of the sixth century.

Hugh, bishop of Lincoln, was born in Burgundy; but invited into England by Henry II. to preside over a monaltery of Carthufian monks, at Witreham in Somersetihire. The King soon afterwards made him bihop of Lincoln; the cathedral of which place he rebuilt from the foundation. He died Nov. 17th, 1200, of a quartan ague; and his body was carried to the cathedral to be buried, on their shoulders, by John king of England, and William king of Scots, affitted by some of their lords. He was canonized at Rome, A. D. 1220.

Edmund, king of the East-Angles, who being attacked by the Danes, and unable to hold out, offered himself to them for a facrifice, if they would spare his subjects. ' Being in poffeffion of his person, the Danes endeavoured to make him renounce his religion; but failing in this, they tortured him cruelly, and shot him to death with arrows. He was buried at St. Edmund's-Bury, which received its name from him.

Cecilia; a Roman virgin, saint, and martyr. She lived in the year 225, and was cruelly put to death, for refusing to renounce her religion, either by being thrown into boiling water, or shut up in a hot bath for twenty-four hours, and afterwards beheaded.

+ St. Clement, by birth a Roman, and made bishop of Rome (according to the suffrage of antiquity) by one or both of the Apostles, St. Peter and St. Paul. According to Lardner, he is indisputably author of one of the two excellent epiftles ascribed to him. He sealed his faith by his martyrdom about A.D. 81: being thrown into the sea with a stone round his neck.

1 Catherine; an Alexandrian, converted to Christianity, A.D. 30%, and martyred about the year 310, because she refused to sacrifice to idols, and reproved the bloody Emperor Maxentius to his face. She was executed by means of a wheel armed with iron spikes, being rolled over her body. Hence it is that this inftrument of torture is her usualaccompaniment.
