ST. BRYNOTH I., BISHOP OF SCARA, IN SWEDEN, C.

ST. SIGFRID, apostle of Sweden, consecrated St. Unno, an Englishman, first bishop of Scara, in the province of West-Gothland, in Sweden. Brynoth, son of Algoth Folcung, was from him the twenty-second bishop of this church, which he governed thirty-eight years with admirable zeal and sanctity, and dying on the 6th of February, in 1317, was honored in Sweden among the saints. See the catalogue of the bishops of Scara, in Swedish verses, divided into stanzas, wrote under their pictures in the palace of stone, built by Brynoth III., bishop of that see in the decline of the fifteenth century, preserved by Benzelius, junior, in Monum. Ecclesiæ Suevogothicæ, p. 78, et not. p. 231. See also on this saint, Messenius, in Chronologia Scondiæ, ad annos 1278, 1287, 1289, 1317, and Analectorum t. 2, pp. 131, 139, 141, and his Historia Sanctorum et Præsulum Scondiæ, aucta a Joan. Perinksgioldo, in Messenius’s Scondia Illustrata. Stockolmiæ, 1700, in 10 tom. fol. See also John Vastovius, published by Benzelius, p. 78.
