Thomas is Becket. Selja is an island off the Norwegian coast where St Sunniva, an Irish princess, and her companions were "martyred" when a cave, in which they were taking refuge from ill-intentioned heathens, collapsed. The seven brothers were sons of the Roman matron Felicity (not St Felicity); they were martyred under that tyrant and occasional writer of motivational soundbites, Marcus Aurelius.
