How to use Bega in a sentence
There are also ruins of an old church, the dedication of which, like the island chapel, is ascribed to one St Begnet, perhaps a diminutive form of Bega, but the identity is not clear.
It lies on the navigable Bega canal and on the river Bega, and consists of the inner town, formerly strongly fortified, and of four outlying suburbs.
Thus the pious Bega was the first to establish a nunnery in Northumbria.
The name is derived from an Irish saint, Bega, an abbess, who founded a small nunnery here about the year 650.
The Bega canal runs from Temesvar to Nagy-Becskerek, and thence to Titel, where it flows into the Theiss.Advertisement
