Christian mythology

A selection of Christian Martyrs, Hermits & Virgins


Christian Saint

Also known as Venerable Bede

Famous Doctor of the Church known as the Venerable One

Originally from Jarrow in England, he became a deacon at nineteen and went on to compose many books and tracts about almost everything.

Probably his best known work is ‘The Ecclesiastical History of the English People’, which is far more interesting than it sounds. It also includes his racy autobiography.

Bede is our only source of information for the Anglo-Saxon pagan deities Eostre and Rheda.

He established a monastic school at York and was so popular he has two feast days (26th and 27th May) in case you miss one.
