Book of Saints – Alkeld


ALKELD (Saint) Virgin (March 27) (10th century) Two Yorkshire churches are dedicated to this Saint (sometimes called Athilda). Nothing whatever is known of her except that an ancient painting represents her being strangled by Danish pirates. Such an event may with some probability be assigned to the tenth century. But her name does not occur in any of the older Calendars or in any Liturgical record.
