Celtic and Old English Saints 14 July
* St. Idus of Leinster
* St. Deusdedit of Canterbury
St. Idus of Leinster, Bishop
5th century. Saint Idus was a disciple of Saint Patrick, by whom he was
baptized. Patrick appointed him bishop of Alt-Fadha in Leinster. He is
often invoked in the old Irish prayer in verse which bears the name of
Saint Moling (Benedictines, Husenbeth).
Another one who preached during that terrible false period, loosely
referred to as The Inquisition H.F.
There have actually been several different inquisitions. The first was
established in 1184 in southern France as a response to the Catharist
heresy. This was known as the Medieval Inquisition, and it was phased out
as Catharism disappeared.
Quite separate was the Roman Inquisition, begun in 1542. It was the least
active and most benign of the three variations.
Separate again was the infamous Spanish Inquisition, started in 1478, a
state institution used to identify conversos―Jews and Moors (Muslims) who
pretended to convert to Christianity for purposes of political or social
advantage and secretly practiced their former religion. More importantly,
its job was also to clear the good names of many people who were falsely
accused of being heretics. It was the Spanish Inquisition that had the
worst record of fulfilling these duties.
The various inquisitions stretched through the better part of a millennia,
and can collectively be called "The Inquisition."
