Book of Saints – Dubritius

Article

DUBRITIUS (DYFFRYG, DEVEREUX) (Saint) Bishop (November 14) (6th century) A famous Welsh Saint, of the race of Brychan and the founder of monachism in Wales. He was Bishop of Llandaff and Archbishop of Caerleon, which latter See he resigned to the yet more celebrated Saint David. Saint Dubritius is said to have been consecrated Bishop of Saint Germanus of Auxerre. He died probably about the middle of the sixth century, and, as it would appear, in the Isle of Bardsey, to which he had retired in his old age. His relics were solemnly translated A.D. 1120.
