St. Justus of Urgell

May 28

Saint Justus of Urgell (died c. 527 AD) was a Spanish bishop and saint. He is the first known and recorded bishop of Urgell, and is considered to have participated in some of the Councils of Toledo, and the councils of Lleida, and Valencia. He is mentioned by Isidore of Seville, who considered him one of the “illustrious men" of whom he wrote the lives. According to one tradition, Justus had three brothers who were also saints: Nebridius, bishop of Egara and then bishop of Barcelona; Saint Elpidius; and Saint Justinian. He is remembered on May 28.
