Saints' Day of Sant Pau Ermità 

January 15th

January 15th is the Saints' Day of Sant Pau Ermità, known as Saint Paul the First Hermit, Paul of Thebes or Paul the Anchorite, in Catalonia he is one of the Bearded Saints, celebrated in the Setmana dels Barbuts.

According to legend, Pau went into the desert of Thebes during the persecutions under Decius and Valerian around 250 AD, where he lived in a cave and was brought a piece of bread every day by a crow until he died at the age of 113.

He was called the first monk by Saint Anthony and the Order of Saint Paul the First Hermit was founded in his name.
