  Crispin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Crispin and Crispinian were once the Catholic patron saints of cobblers, tanners, and leather workers.
Indeed, their role as shoemakers, their relationship as twins, and the timing of their holiday are suggestive of the possibility that they could have represented a local Celtic deity which had been made into a saint during a syncretist conversion.
Crispin is perhaps best known for lending his name to the famous speech given by the eponymous king in Shakespeare's Henry V before the Battle of Agincourt, where Crispinian's name is spelled Crispian, perhaps reflecting London pronunciation of the time:

 Edmund Crispin Detective Stories   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Edmund Crispin (1921-1978) wrote very few books -- his main output, important as it is, was produced in just the few years between 1945 and 1951 -- but was an important mystery critic in England, in some opinions maybe the best after Julian Symons.
Crispin had a nasty habit of throwing in allusions and quotations (often in Latin, French, or German) that even a well-educated person such as I consider myself to be has no clue about.
Amusing that Crispin, talking about Fen's fondness for 'outdated American slang', should think 'cover up' falls in that category -- this (not meaning 'place a cloth over') is now part of the English language wherever it's spoken.

It's been 15 years since Crispin Glover, clad in a wig and a clunky pair of platform shoes, stepped onto the set of Late Night With David Letterman and delivered a high kick inches away from the host's gap-toothed noggin.

He's also written several books, using a William S. Burroughs-style "cut and paste" method to reinterpret texts from the 1800s.
