Patron Saints of Shoemakers
They sound like a firm of lawyers, but in fact they were two brothers who went together like a pair of shoes. Which is as it should be as they were shoemakers, for which they are the Patron Saints.They presided in Gaul and France and were denounced to the Roman Prefect and accordingly totally tortured and beheaded.
Or were they? There is a legend that they escaped and turned up in Faversham in Kent, England, and the house where they are assumed to have lived and worked was visited by pilgrims up to the 17th Century. There is an altar dedicated to them in the parish church.
