St Alban

St Alban, originally uploaded by Lawrence OP.

St Alban, the first martyr of England, is believed to have died on 22 June 209, but his feast day is celebrated today, 20 June. He is the only saint to have had a continuous cult in these lands since the Roman era.

This window of the saint is in the chancel of Leicester Cathedral.
