  Dewi - Sant (St. David)
Dewi's early education was at a small Celtic monastery at Henfynyw, south of present day Aberaeron, and was completed at Llanddeusant under Paulinus (whose sight Dewi is said to have restored, one of many miracles attributed to him during his lifetime).
Dewi established a monastery in the area where St David's is now, using it as the hub of a network of monasteries he was to establish in west Wales during the sixth century.
Dewi was buried on the site of the present St David's cathedral (built in 1188) though whether his remains are still preserved in the reliquary behind the main altar must be open to serious doubt.Dewi's reputation grew during the Middle Ages.
