St. Modanic (Modan) of Aberdeen, Bishop

14 November

Dates unknown, possibly 8th century. The feast of the Scottish bishop Modanic was kept at Aberdeen and Philorth (Fraserburgh), but of whom we have no reliable particulars. His silver head-relic at Philorth was previously carried in procession to invoke rain or otherwise improve the weather. He is principally associated with the foundation at Timhood (Benedictines, Farmer).
