Feast Days of the Saints
An Ultimate List for Celtic & Anglo-Saxon Saints from the Island of Britain

There are a remarkable number of holy men and women, reverred as saints, who either hailed from or came to work in Britain. Each one should have a feast day on which to especially celebrate their lives, though some have been lost in the mists of time. The date of death is usually the chief feast day, but some saints have more than one, including possibly more than one date of translation (moving the body to a new shrine) or sometimes the date of birth. Celtic saints in particular often had different dates of celebration in different areas: Wales, Cornwall and Brittany. Of those that we know of or suspect, I have tried to list only a single date, that which I believe to be the chief feast day. There are 600 saints to choose from.
