Book of Saints – Elian ap Erbin


ELIAN AP ERBIN (Saint) (January 12) (5th century) The name of this holy man appears in some Welsh Calendars, and on that account is given in the English Menology. He is possibly identical with the Saint Eloan, son of Saint Erbin, Prince of Devon, a fifth century Saint, whose Feast is also kept on January 12. He would therefore be other than the Saint Elian or Allan, styled “the pilgrim,” who lived perhaps a half century later.
