Podcast 17th January 2012 on St Alphege

We are indebted to the Clifton Diocese and Dr Giles Mercer for the following : -

“This year is a special one for the Clifton diocese and particularly for the city of Bath. The millennium anniversary of the death of one of the great saints associated with the city will be marked in 2012.

On 17th January 2012 Dr Giles Mercer (Bath historian and diocesan trustee), via a podcast, tells us a little about one of Bath’s most remarkable residents and gives us an insight into this year’s celebrations. Dr Mercer also explains St Alphege’s relevance a thousand years on and gives us insights as to why St Alphege is considered a martyr for justice, peace and reconciliation.”
