Rule, St (?4th century), a Scottish saint who supposedly brought the relics of St Andrew to Scotland; he is said to have been a native of Patras in the Peloponnese, who was instructed in a dream to set out with the relics; when he reached Fife, he was similarly told to stop, and there he built a church. This was said to be the origin of the name St Andrews. His feast day is 17 October (and also, through confusion with St Regulus of Senlis, 30 March).
