Course Information

York Myths: The Legend of St Helena

A non-accredited history and heritage course

Course Code

CLL 23/24_NA_104
Course Description

On 25 July 306 AD Constantine the Great was proclaimed Roman Emperor in York. Memories of this event became entangled with the belief that Constantine was born in York, (at the Bedern), and that Constantine’s mother, Helena, was a British princess. This day school examines the historical life of Helena, (who reputedly discovered the True Cross on which Jesus died), the development of the British legends of St Helena, and why so many churches in York and Yorkshire were dedicated to St Helena.
