1 MARCH

Yesterday was the feast of St. David ("Daffyd" or "Dewi"), the patronal feast day of Wales. This is not David the king and author of the psalms but David, the sixth century bishop of Menevia and son of a Welsh prince. There is more about him here. St. David's Cathedral, a medieval cathedral built on the site of one of St. David's monasteries, has an interesting web page here. A belated happy feast day to any Welsh who happen upon this page.
