St. David's Cathedral

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The monastic community was founded by Saint David, Abbot of Menevia, who died in AD589. Between AD645 and 1097, the community was attacked many times by raiders, including the Vikings, however it was of such note as both a religious and intellectual centre that King Alfred summoned help from the monastic community at St David’s in rebuilding the intellectual life of the Kingdom of Wessex.
