Justa and Rufina

December 12, 2012 by  

Justa and Rufina, 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 manuscripts) 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.
