Summary

We present the results of several surveys for supernovae (SNe) in galaxy clusters. SNe discovered in deep, archival HST images were used to measure the cluster SN Ia rate to z = 1. A search for SNe in nearby (0.06 ≤ z ≤ 0.2) Abell galaxy clusters yielded 15 SNe, 12 of which were spectroscopically confirmed. Of these, 7 are cluster SNe Ia, which we will use to measure the SN Ia rate in nearby clusters. This search has also discovered the first convincing examples of intergalactic SNe. We conclude with a brief description of ongoing and future cluster SN surveys.
