St Alban

Here is a snap of the shrine of our first martyr, St Alban, which I visited early last month. It is in the former abbey church of St Alban's in Hertfordshire, temporarily an Anglican cathedral.. St Alban was martyred during one of the Roman persecutions, having been apprehended protecting a fugitive priest- an interesting turn of events, given the nature of the Tudor and Stuart persecutions which were to follow more than a millennium later.
