December 13, 2012 by staff
Chapel Ermita Santa Justa Spain, Saints Justa and Rufina (Ruffina) (Spanish: Santa Justa y Santa Rufina) are venerated as martyrs. They are said to have been martyred at Hispalis (Seville) during the 3rd century.
Only St. Justa (sometimes “Justus” in early ma**scripts) is mentioned in the Martyrologium Hieronymianum (93), but in the historical martyrologies (Quentin, “Les martyrologes historiques”, 176-77) Rufina is also mentioned, following the legendary Acts. The two saints are highly honored in the Mozarabic Liturgy.
La Seo Cathedral (Zaragoza) contains a chapel dedicated to Justa and Rufina. Agost, in Valencia province, is the location of a hermitage dedicated to these saints (Ermita de Santa Justa y Rufina), built in 1821. Toledo also has a church dedicated to them.
