      St. Burian, Virgin in Cornwall
      ---------------------------------------
      6th century. Saint Buriana was another Irish woman who migrated to
      Cornwall, where Saint Buryan across from the Scilly Island perpetuates
      her name. King Athelstan built a college and church there to house her
      relics (Benedictines, Husenbeth).

      Translation of the Relics of St. Dyfrig,
      Archbishop of Caerleon, Wales
      --------------------------------------------------
      (also known as Dubricius Dubritius, Dubric, Dyfig, Devereux)

      Main Feast is 14 November

      Born at Madley (?), near Hereford; died c. 545. Saint Dyfrig was an
      important church leader, probably a monk, in southeast Wales and western
      Herefordshire. His earliest foundation was Ariconium (Archenfield,
      Hereford), but his most important centres were at Hentland (Henllan) and
      Moccas in the Wye valley. Dyfrig attracted numerous disciples to the two
      monasteries, and from them founded many other monasteries and churches.

      He was associated with Saint Illtyd and, according to the 7th-century
      vita of Saint Samson, with the island of Caldey for whose monastery he
      appointed Saint Samson (July 28) abbot. Later he consecrated Samson
      bishop. An ancient, but incomplete, inscription at Caldey reads Magl
      Dubr ("the tonsured servant of Dubricius").

      Dyfrig and Saint Deinol (Daniel) were the two prelates who convinced
      Saint David to attend the synod of Brefi. Dyfrig spent the last years of
      his life at Ynys Enlli (Bardsey) and died there.

      In later medieval legends he becomes the 'archbishop of Caerleon'
      (Caerlon-on-Usk) and, according to the unreliable Geoffrey of Monmouth,
      crowns 'King' Arthur at Colchester (he is the high saint of Idylls of a
      King), and the ecclesiastical politics of the 12th century claimed him
      as founder of the Normans' see of Llandaff, where he was one of the four
      titular saints of the cathedral.

      The later vita written by Benedict of Gloucester claims that Dyfrig was
      a disciple of Saint Germanus of Auxerre, but this is unlikely. Legend
      also states that Saint David resigned in his favour as metropolitan of
      Wales.

      The relics of Saint Dyfrig were translated from Bardsey to Llandaff in
      1120. He is the 'Dubric the high saint, Chief of the church in Britain'
      of Tennyson's Coming of Arthur, and the place-name Saint Devereux in
      Herefordshire is a corruption of the saint's name.

      Church dedications to him at Gwenddwr (Powys) and Porlock (Somerset)
      suggest that his disciples were active in the expansion of Christianity
      to the west and southwest, possibly in association with the
      multitudinous children Saint Brychan of Brecknock (Attwater,
      Benedictines, Doble, Delaney, Farmer).

      In art Saint Dubricius is depicted holding two crosiers and an
      archiepiscopal cross. He is venerated in Herefordshire, Monmouthshire,
      and Caldey Island (Roeder).

      Troparion of St Dyfrig tone 1
      Thou art worthily honoured as the Father of Welsh Monasticism. O
      Hierarch Dyfrig,/ labouring to establish true asceticism with thy
      brother in the Faith, Samson of Dol/ whom thou didst raise to the
      dignity of the episcopate./ In thy pastoral love, O Saint,/ pray for us
      that despite our unspiritual lives/ Christ our God will grant us great
      mercy.

              St. Burian, Virgin in Cornwall
              ---------------------------------------
              6th century. Saint Buriana was another Irish woman who migrated to
              Cornwall, where Saint Buryan across from the Scilly Island perpetuates
              her name. King Athelstan built a college and church there to house her
              relics (Benedictines, Husenbeth).

              Translation of the Relics of St. Dyfrig,
              Archbishop of Caerleon, Wales
              --------------------------------------------------
              (also known as Dubricius Dubritius, Dubric, Dyfig, Devereux)

              Main Feast is 14 November

              Born at Madley (?), near Hereford; died c. 545. Saint Dyfrig was an
              important church leader, probably a monk, in southeast Wales and western
              Herefordshire. His earliest foundation was Ariconium (Archenfield,
              Hereford), but his most important centres were at Hentland (Henllan) and
              Moccas in the Wye valley. Dyfrig attracted numerous disciples to the two
              monasteries, and from them founded many other monasteries and churches.

              He was associated with Saint Illtyd and, according to the 7th-century
              vita of Saint Samson, with the island of Caldey for whose monastery he
              appointed Saint Samson (July 28) abbot. Later he consecrated Samson
              bishop. An ancient, but incomplete, inscription at Caldey reads Magl
              Dubr ("the tonsured servant of Dubricius").

              Dyfrig and Saint Deinol (Daniel) were the two prelates who convinced
              Saint David to attend the synod of Brefi. Dyfrig spent the last years of
              his life at Ynys Enlli (Bardsey) and died there.

              In later medieval legends he becomes the 'archbishop of Caerleon'
              (Caerlon-on-Usk) and, according to the unreliable Geoffrey of Monmouth,
              crowns 'King' Arthur at Colchester (he is the high saint of Idylls of a
              King), and the ecclesiastical politics of the 12th century claimed him
              as founder of the Normans' see of Llandaff, where he was one of the four
              titular saints of the cathedral.

              The later vita written by Benedict of Gloucester claims that Dyfrig was
              a disciple of Saint Germanus of Auxerre, but this is unlikely. Legend
              also states that Saint David resigned in his favour as metropolitan of
              Wales.

              The relics of Saint Dyfrig were translated from Bardsey to Llandaff in
              1120. He is the 'Dubric the high saint, Chief of the church in Britain'
              of Tennyson's Coming of Arthur, and the place-name Saint Devereux in
              Herefordshire is a corruption of the saint's name.

              Church dedications to him at Gwenddwr (Powys) and Porlock (Somerset)
              suggest that his disciples were active in the expansion of Christianity
              to the west and southwest, possibly in association with the
              multitudinous children Saint Brychan of Brecknock (Attwater,
              Benedictines, Doble, Delaney, Farmer).

              In art Saint Dubricius is depicted holding two crosiers and an
              archiepiscopal cross. He is venerated in Herefordshire, Monmouthshire,
              and Caldey Island (Roeder).

              Troparion of St Dyfrig tone 1
              Thou art worthily honoured as the Father of Welsh Monasticism. O
              Hierarch Dyfrig,/ labouring to establish true asceticism with thy
              brother in the Faith, Samson of Dol/ whom thou didst raise to the
              dignity of the episcopate./ In thy pastoral love, O Saint,/ pray for us
              that despite our unspiritual lives/ Christ our God will grant us great
              mercy.

                    St. Burian, Virgin in Cornwall
                    ---------------------------------------
                    6th century. Saint Buriana was another Irish woman who migrated to
                    Cornwall, where Saint Buryan across from the Scilly Island perpetuates
                    her name. King Athelstan built a college and church there to house her
                    relics (Benedictines, Husenbeth).

                    Translation of the Relics of St. Dyfrig,
                    Archbishop of Caerleon, Wales
                    --------------------------------------------------
                    (also known as Dubricius Dubritius, Dubric, Dyfig, Devereux)

                    Main Feast is 14 November

                    Born at Madley (?), near Hereford; died c. 545. Saint Dyfrig was an
                    important church leader, probably a monk, in southeast Wales and western
                    Herefordshire. His earliest foundation was Ariconium (Archenfield,
                    Hereford), but his most important centres were at Hentland (Henllan) and
                    Moccas in the Wye valley. Dyfrig attracted numerous disciples to the two
                    monasteries, and from them founded many other monasteries and churches.

                    He was associated with Saint Illtyd and, according to the 7th-century
                    vita of Saint Samson, with the island of Caldey for whose monastery he
                    appointed Saint Samson (July 28) abbot. Later he consecrated Samson
                    bishop. An ancient, but incomplete, inscription at Caldey reads Magl
                    Dubr ("the tonsured servant of Dubricius").

                    Dyfrig and Saint Deinol (Daniel) were the two prelates who convinced
                    Saint David to attend the synod of Brefi. Dyfrig spent the last years of
                    his life at Ynys Enlli (Bardsey) and died there.

                    In later medieval legends he becomes the 'archbishop of Caerleon'
                    (Caerlon-on-Usk) and, according to the unreliable Geoffrey of Monmouth,
                    crowns 'King' Arthur at Colchester (he is the high saint of Idylls of a
                    King), and the ecclesiastical politics of the 12th century claimed him
                    as founder of the Normans' see of Llandaff, where he was one of the four
                    titular saints of the cathedral.

                    The later vita written by Benedict of Gloucester claims that Dyfrig was
                    a disciple of Saint Germanus of Auxerre, but this is unlikely. Legend
                    also states that Saint David resigned in his favour as metropolitan of
                    Wales.

                    The relics of Saint Dyfrig were translated from Bardsey to Llandaff in
                    1120. He is the 'Dubric the high saint, Chief of the church in Britain'
                    of Tennyson's Coming of Arthur, and the place-name Saint Devereux in
                    Herefordshire is a corruption of the saint's name.

                    Church dedications to him at Gwenddwr (Powys) and Porlock (Somerset)
                    suggest that his disciples were active in the expansion of Christianity
                    to the west and southwest, possibly in association with the
                    multitudinous children Saint Brychan of Brecknock (Attwater,
                    Benedictines, Doble, Delaney, Farmer).

                    In art Saint Dubricius is depicted holding two crosiers and an
                    archiepiscopal cross. He is venerated in Herefordshire, Monmouthshire,
                    and Caldey Island (Roeder).

                    Troparion of St Dyfrig tone 1
                    Thou art worthily honoured as the Father of Welsh Monasticism. O
                    Hierarch Dyfrig,/ labouring to establish true asceticism with thy
                    brother in the Faith, Samson of Dol/ whom thou didst raise to the
                    dignity of the episcopate./ In thy pastoral love, O Saint,/ pray for us
                    that despite our unspiritual lives/ Christ our God will grant us great
                    mercy.
