The Two Saints Turibius

St Turibius, Bishop of Astorga and episcopal opponent of the Priscillianists, died 460

Not to be confused with St Turibius, Benedictine Bishop of Palencia, Founder of the Monastery of Liebana. died 528.
Although they seem to have similar iconography and in the calendar share the feastday of April 16.
