Roman Catholic Saint. He was a Christian priest sheltered by St. Alban, as a consequence of which the latter was executed. His remains, or as one authority puts it "certain relics which were held to be his", were discovered at Redbourne, near the town of St. Albans, in the twelfth century, and placed in the Abbey church. Unfortunately his first shrine was destroyed when the roof of the abbey fell in. A new shrine (the present one) was built around 1350. This shrine was broken into fragments and the remains of St. Amphibalus dispersed at the dissolution of the English monasteries. The fragments of the shrine were found and restored during the nineteenth-century.
