Many churches, including St Giles at Cripplegate in London, were dedicated to him, and there were two annual medieval fairs, at Winchester and Oxford, of which St Giles' Fair Oxford survives as a funfair, set up for two days each year in the wide street of St Giles' in the city centre.
In Germany, he was regarded as one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. His feast day is 1 September.
