ST. BEGA, OR BEES, V.

SHE was a holy Irish virgin, who flourished about the middle of the seventh century, led an anachoretical life, and afterward founded a nunnery in Copeland near Carlisle. Her shrine was kept there after her death, and became famous for pilgrims.* There is in Scotland a place called Kilbees from her name, according to a note of Th. Innes on the manuscript calendar kept in the Scotch College of Paris. See Alford, Annal. t. 2, p. 294, Monast. Anglic. Suysken, t. 2, Sept. p. 694, &c.

ST. MACCULINDUS

The Irish Calendar commemorates on this day St. Macculindus, bishop of Lusk, who departed to our Lord in 497. See Colgan, MSS.
