Saints Justa and Rufina are venerated as martyrs. They are said to have been martyred at Hispalis (Seville) during the 3rd century. The two saints are highly honored in the Mozarabic Liturgy. Their legend states that they were sisters and natives of Seville who made fine earthenware pottery for a living, with which they supported themselves and many of the city’s poor. Their patronage is especially strong in Seville. According to tradition, they are protectors of the Giralda and the Cathedral of Seville.
Saint Isidore of Seville (Latin: Isidorus Hispalensis) (c. 560 – 4 April 636) served as Archbishop of Seville for more than three decades and is considered, as the 19th-century historian Montalembert put it in an oft-quoted phrase, “The last scholar of the ancient world”. At a time of disintegration of classical culture, and aristocratic violence and illiteracy, he was involved in the conversion of the royal Visigothic Arians to Catholicism, both assisting his brother Leander of Seville, and continuing after his brother’s death. He was influential in the inner circle of Sisebut, Visigothic king of Hispania. Like Leander, he played a prominent role in the Councils of Toledo and Seville. The Visigothic legislation that resulted from these councils influenced the beginnings of representative government.
