Our venerable and God-bearing father Guthlac of Crowland was a hermit of the late seventh and early eighth centuries in Anglo-Saxon England. Born a prince of some rank, after spending time as a soldier he forsook the world and took up in a moor, draining it and battling demons. His feast day is celebrated on April 11, and the commemoration of the translation of his relics on August 30.
