Meaning And History of Austica : Augustine And Scholastica



It happened that these two individuals were invited to preach at a funeral while preaching, they spoke in favor of the widow while condemning the culture of a widow not see her husband’s dead body during the funeral.

At that instance, there was pandemonium at the funeral and in the process, both preachers were shot dead.

Both of them were buried in the church premises after which the elders of Nanka came together and agreed that the law that prohibits widows from seeing their husband’s dead body during the funeral should be abolished.
And it was so.

In their Honour and memory, a secondary school was built in Nanka which was named after them, Austica Memorial Secondary School Nanka, a name coined from Augustine and Scholastica.
