Who is Saint Alban?


Saint Alban is venerated as the first recorded British Christian martyr, and is considered to be the British protomartyr.

Along with his fellow saints “Amphibalus,” Julius, and Aaron, Alban is one of four named martyrs recorded from Roman Britain. He is traditionally believed to have been beheaded in the Roman city of Verulamium (modern St. Alban’s Cathedral) sometime during the 3rd or 4th century, and his cult has been celebrated there since ancient times.
