Itta (Ituberga) - Abbess of Nivelles

Itta (Ituberga) - Abbess of Nivelles

Blessed Ida of Nivelles, OSB Widow (AC)
(also known as Itta, Iduberga)

Fiest day: May 8

Died 652. After the death of Blessed Pepin of Landen, his wife Ida built a double monastery at Nivelles. She and her younger daughter, Saint Gertrude entered the monastery, which was placed under the Benedictine Rule and governed by Gertrude (Benedictines). Several art historians give a stag with flaming horns as the emblem of Saint Ida of Nivelles, but it seems likely that this is a confusion with Ida of Toggenburg, whose proper attribute it is (Roeder). She is invoked against toothache and erysipelas (Roeder).
