The book is a must for anyone interested in the history of the Church in Wales, indeed for anyone interested in learning the glorious heritage bequeathed to them from the time when Wales was the only Christian country in the world.

'The Book of Welsh Saints' is an excellent publication - conscientious, clear, intelligent and, where necessary. There was considerable Irish colonisation in Dyfed in south-west Wales, where there are many stones with Ogham inscriptions. Wales had become Christian, and the "age of the saints" (approximately –) was marked by the establishment of monastic settlements throughout the country, by religious leaders such as Saint David, Illtud and Teilo.

This book explores the development of the cult of the saints in western Europe between c and AD. The main emphasis is upon Anglo-Saxon England, post-Roman Britain, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, but there are important contributions on Francia and on western Europe as a whole.

Perhaps the most legendary figure among Great Britain’s patron saints, Saint George is the one on this list about whom we know the least. It is believed he was once a high-ranking Roman soldier in the 4 th Century and the Emperor Diocletian tortured him in an attempt to get George to renounce his Christian faith.

The book has been criticised on a number of levels but it’s still revolutionary in the way that it offered us a functionalist account of what’s going on with the cult of saints. It’s about, among other things, the way that private customs of veneration of the dead were made public by bishops, how the very special dead were given central.
