The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
July 17
St. Turninus, Confessor of Ireland
 
HE was a holy Irish priest and monk, who coming with St. Foilan into the Netherlands, laboured with unwearied zeal in bringing souls to the perfect practice of Christian virtue. The territory about Antwerp reaped the chief fruit of his apostolic mission. He died there about the close of the eighth century. His relics were translated into the principality of Liege, and are honourably enshrined in a monastery situated on the Sambre. See Colgan MSS. ad 17. Jul.  1
