College of St. Artemas featured in news article

Part of the Barony of Calafia, the College of St. Artemas is a small group located at the University of California San Diego campus. A recent article by Katie McLaughlin in The Guardian, a campus newspaper, featured the history and activities of the group.

"It's a little-known fact that a seventh college exists at UCSD: the College of St. Artemas, named after a preaching Italian student who was stabbed to death by angry classmates wielding styluses in the time of the Roman Empire. The details of Artemas of Pozzuoli's bizarre fate are hazy, like many stories of early Catholic saints, and they are just as much legend as they are history - but this blend of legend and fact is ordinary fare for UCSD's chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism."
