Saint Salustes

Salust, Saluste

A saint from Orberica.

Salust is described as a knight and a cousin of Joseph of Arimathea in some versions of the Arthurian legends. He is often depicted as one of the keepers or guardians of the Holy Grail. He is sometimes portrayed as a faithful and virtuous knight who remains dedicated to protecting the sacred relic.

Joseph of Arimathea had him interred in Sarras, giving the newly-christened city a holy body. A church was founded in his name. His spirit appeared to assist King Mordrains of Sarras during his difficult adventure on the Rock of the Perilous Port.
