St JAMES-THE-LESS

Christian Saint

Patron Saint of Uruguay, also Fullers and Hatters

The other original Disciple called James, not to be confused with JAMES-THE-GREAT.

It may sound belittling to be called ‘the Less’, but he was probably just a bit shorter.

He may have become the first Bishop of Jerusalem but not for long. After being stoned someone hit him on the head with a fuller’s pole or bat — an implement for stretching or smoothing cloth — and split his skull.

So he is now the Patron of Fullers, and when did you last see one of these in the garment trade?
