Boethius (Buite, Boetius, Beode, or Boich)
Boethius (Buite, Boetius, Beode, Or Boich)
a Scotch saint commemorated Dec. 7, was the son of Bronach of Mainister-Buithe, of the race of Comla. He died upon the day on which St. Columba was' born, whose birth he is said to have foretold, and who afterwards came to the monastery and disinterred his remains. The Four Masters give the obit of Buit Mac Bronaigh, bishop of Mainister, at A.D. 521, which is generally accepted as the true date. A poor copy of St. Buite's Life, in Latin, is preserved in the British Museum.
