Saints with White Hot Hammers

Over at Atlas Obscura, it’s Day 11 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today’s entry discusses St. Foy, who sounds as though she would be right at home in a Discworld novel.

In life, St. Foy was one of many young Christians who was martyred for her faith by the Roman Empire, but it was several hundred years after her execution that her life got really interesting…Even when she was helping people, she often couldn’t resist tormenting them, so much so that in town her miracles were known as “St. Foy’s jokes.”

What follows is the tale of how St. Foy aided a knight with a herniated scrotum. I’ll let you read it over there.
