- Alphonse de Meneses
Born to the nobility. Mercedarian friar at the convent of San Eulalia, Montpellier, France. Exceptionally pious, even for a man in religious life. In 1239 he worked with Blessed Dionisio de Vilaregut to rescue prisoners in the cities of Jativa and Granada; together they freed 316 people held as slaves by the Moors.
