Book of Saints – Clether


CLETHER (SCLEDOG, CLYDOG, CLEER) (October 23) (Saint) (6th century) Latinised Clitanus. One of the Saints descended from King Brychan of Brecknock, or at least of his clan. He is said to have been a disciple of Saint Brynach and to have died about A.D. 520. Several dedications of churches (for instance, Saint Cleer, near Liskeard), perpetuate his memory. Another Cledog or Clydog (Cleodius) is commemorated on August 19. He is alleged to have died a Martyr in Herefordshire, A.D. 482.
