Christian Saint

Also known as Bernard Of Clairveaux

Patron Saint of Gibraltar and Bee Keepers

Cisterian Abbot, theologian and mystic.

He promoted the Second Crusade and was firmly against the goings-on of Abelard.

Nevertheless his way with words earned him nicknames like ‘Doctor Mellifluous the Honey Sweet Teacher.’

He must have been fascinated by the Old Testament’s somewhat pseudo-erotic Song Of Songs (aka Canticle of Canticles) — he wrote eighty-six sermons on the subject. Ahem.
