ST. PELLEGRINI OR PEREGRINUS, HERMIT

AN Irish young prince of royal blood, who, after visiting the holy places in Palestine, led an austere eremitical life for forty years in the chain of mountains near Modena in Italy. He died in 643. He is honored among the patrons of the country of Modena and Lucca, and from him that chain of the Apennine hills is called Monti di S. Pellegrini. See Colgan in MSS. ad 1 Aug and Dempster in his Etruria Regalis, printed at Florence in 1723, in 2 vols. folio, at the expense of Mr. Thomas Coke, afterward earl of Leicester.
