    Aelred of Rivieux was not from across the channel but was an Englishman. Rivieux with its huge and beautiful ruins is in Yorkshire (and pronounced by the locals as Rivers). He is a great saint of intimate male friendship for sure. Also interestingly his father was a priest in good standing. He was one of the last of the Anglo Saxon priests, I believe.

      Agreed. Rievaulx, in spite of the name, is in Yorkshire, and Aelred was English – born in Northumbria. Thanks.

    I am tired. Aelred was a good and holy saint. Thanks for bringing him to our attention. And you are right about the spelling of Rievaulx. But it is still in Yorkshire! Cheers.
