ST. DANIEL, B. C.

THE great veneration which the British churches testified for this holy prelate, gives us a high idea of his sanctity. He flourished in the former part of the sixth century, and in 516 instituted a college or monastery near the arm of the sea that divides Anglesey from Wales, where a city was soon after built by king Mailgo, the same who took upon him to defray the charges of St. David’s burial. The place was called from this monastery Ben-chor, or Bangor, that is, beautiful, or lofty choir, says bishop Usher.* St. Daniel was ordained by St. Dubricius the first bishop of the place, was present at the synod of Brevi, died in 545, and was buried in the isle of Berdsey. Le Neve was not able to find the names of any other bishops of Bangor before the twelfth century.1 The cathedral is dedicated to God in the name of St. Daniel. See Usher’s Antiquities, c. 14, p. 274; Brown Willis on Cathedrals, &c.
