Paulinus of Wales

Saint Paulinus of Wales was a late 5th century Welsh holyman, revered as a saint in Carmarthenshire.

Paulinus lived as a hermit and teacher at a place usually identified as as Whitland (or Hendy Gwyn ar Daf). There he was the tutor of both Saint David and Saint Teilo. He founded churches and chapels around Llandovery. He is said to have attended the Synod of Llanddewi Brefi in 545, where he nominated Saint David to speak. A 6th century inscribed stone found at Caeo in Carmarthenshire, and now in the Carmarthen Museum, appears to honour him as "preserver of the faith, constant lover of his country, champion of righteousness". His feast day is 22 November. G. H. Doble thought he might be the same man as Saint Paul Aurelian.
