St. Andrews Cathedral, Saint Andrews: 20 reviews and 40 photos
St Andrews is, of course, synonymous with Scotland?s patron saint. St Andrew converted the wife of a roman governor of Greece. The governor was so furious of his wife?s conversion that he had Andrew crucified. Andrew asked to be tied to an X shaped cross so as not to emulate Jesus ? thus giving the Scottish flag its distinctive Saltire Cross.
A monk called Rule who lived in Greece was reputedly divinely inspired to take some of the Apostles? bones and make a journey to the west. He ended up shipwrecked at St Andrews and enshrined the sacred relics where the ruin of the 12th century Cathedral now stands.
