Chapter Summary

How and why certain bearers of St. Paul commendation have been recognized and culted in the life of Christendom, however, is a proper field of investigation for the historian; and one which, as shown in a flourishing historiography, has considerable light to shed on many aspects of medieval culture. This chapter is an investigation of one particular cult, that of St. Triduana of Restalrig in Scotland. Although necessarily limited in scope, the examination of this cult may add to our understanding of the perception of sanctity in late medieval Scotland, an area where the cult of the saints remains relatively under-explored. In recent years, however, historiographical focus has begun to broaden, drawing renewed attention to the unavoidable presence of saints in later medieval Scottish life. The life of St.Triduana of Restalrig is known only from the six lessons for Matins of her feast in the Aberdeen Breviary of 1510.
