Trivia Question: What Christian saint cut down Thor’s Oak according to legend?

Answer: St. Boniface

Thor’s Oak was one of the pagan trees to which believers would make sacrifices. Boniface detested this barbarity and cut down the oak invoking the wrath of the god it was dedicated to. When no divine retribution came down, he used the wood to build an altar the stories claim.
