Saint Ymar of Reculver
|Venerated in||Roman Catholic Church|
Eastern Orthodox Church
- Ymar is also the name of one of the Cthulhu Mythos celestial bodies.
A Benedictine monk of Reculver, Ymar was killed by Danish warriors. His name may be the source of the toponym Margate. A legend states that he had a dying wish to be buried in St Johns Parish Church in Margate. Sometime before 1407 the body of St Ymar was brought from Reculver, where he had been a monk, and buried in St John's. Tradition insists that an old stone coffin lid at that church is his.
