St Ragener

St Ragener may be one of many little known anglo-saxon saints,  but he is St Peter’s special saint and the traditional story is that he is buried here.  Following the public workshop held at St Peter’s on 16th November 2010, we hope to discover more objective facts about the life and tradition of St Ragener.

The basis of our current knowledge is the booklet written by Archdeacon Bazil Marsh and Dr David Sargant in the late 1980s after the discovery by archaeologists of a possible Saxon palace adjacent to St Peter’s. Click here to download the text of the booklet.
