Umbria, a province of ancient Italy, situated between Cispadane Gaul on the N. and the Sabine territory on the S., derives its name from a Celtic tribe, Umbri, who became subject to Rome, after a severe struggle, in 280 B.C. Their country, though divided in later times between Spoleto and Urbino, retained its geographical designation, and even since its incorporation in 1860 within the Kingdom of Italy was preserved as an administrative division. It is drained by the Tiber and the Velino, contains the Lake Trasimeno, and is rich in agricultural produce.

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
