David is central to Jewish, Christian, and Islamic doctrine and culture. Biblical tradition maintains that a direct descendant of David will be the Messiah, and in Islam, he is considered to be a prophet. Saint David (Welsh: Dewi Sant; ~500–589) was a Welsh bishop of Menevia during the 6th century; he was later regarded as a saint and as the patron saint of Wales.
