Luxulyan village, with church tower in the background, Cornwall. 1914
A man stands in the roadway on a sunny day with the tower of St Julitta church in the background. St Cyors's Well and the village pump are on the right and the steps at the south east entrance to the churchyard can be seen in the distance. The current church building dates back to the late 1400s, with the tower and the porch being added in the early 1500s. The church is built of local granite. It is believed that there was an earlier building on the site, as the font is Norman in date. Luxulyan Parish Church is dedicated to St Julitta and her son Cyriacus. St Julitta and her three year old son were attempting to flee the persecutions of Christians in Iconium, Lycaonica. During her trial the governor lost his temper when St Julitta refused to recant under torture and fractured the skull of St Cyriacus, killing him. St Julitta was then executed. It is not known why a country church in Cornwall is dedicated to these martyrs. It has been suggested that the church was founded by St Sulien, one of the party of Welsh missionary monks who accompanied St Sampson to Brittany in the 6th century. Like many other Celtic saints, he was said to have been the son of a Welsh King, Brucemail, King of Powys, who had abandoned his heritage for the religious life despite violent parental opposition. The group who travelled with St Sampson to Brittany crossed Cornwall between the estuaries of the Camel and the Fowey. A long distance footpath called the Saints Way runs between Padstow and Fowey passing through Luxulyan. It is reputed to have been the ancient pathway between the two harbours and is marked by massive granite stiles. Source: Luxulyan Church, 2019. Photographer: T. Mitchell.
