Book of Saints – Beuno


BEUNO (Saint) Abbot. (April 21) (7th century) Of a princely family in ancient Wales, educated in the monastery of Bangor, and in his afterlife founder and ruler of several monasteries in North Wales; Clynnog in Carnarvonshire was his chief residence. He died, and was buried there some time in the first half of the seventh century. Butler notes some curious customs, vestiges of the ancient cultus of Saint Beuno, existing in his time in Carnarvonshire; but the memory of the Saint has happily been revived in our own age by the foundation of the important Ecclesiastical establishment known as Saint Beuno’s College.
