Book of Saints – Liephard


(Saint) Bishop, Martyr (February 4) (7th century) A legend makes him out to have been the companion of King Cadwalla in the latter’s pilgrimage to Rome. He was no doubt of English birth and may have been a Bishop, as certain local Liturgies describe him. He was done to death near Cambrai in France about A.D. 640, while on his way back to England. Some writers have confused him with Saint Liudhard, the Bishop who attended Queen Bertha to Canterbury, but neither dates nor ascertained facts justify this theory.
