Rather interesting St Albans facts
Did you know that St Alban was the earliest British saint? He was a pagan living in Verulamium who sheltered a fugitive Christian cleric in the 3rd century, deceiving soldiers hunting the man by exchanging cloaks and getting himself arrested. Impressed by the piety of the cleric Alban declared himself a Christian when brought before a judge, and was duly beheaded outside the town. The spot where he is said to have died is where St Albans Cathedral now stands.
