St. Baya and St. Maura, Virgins

2 November

Died 10th century. The Scottish Saint Baya instructed Saint Maura in the eremitical life. Followers later gathered around Maura, who organised them into a community of which she was abbess. Some authors identify Saint Baya with Saint Begha or Bee (f.d. October 31). They might also be identical to Saints Maura and Britta (f.d. January 15) (Benedictines, Delaney).
