Quick Reference

(d. 680),

supposedly the brother of Botulf, founder of Icanho Abbey. The relics of both saints were translated to Thorney by Ethelwold c.972, where they were long venerated. The hagiographer Folcard identified Adulf with a bishop of Maastricht of similar name, famous for teaching and almsgiving. This is almost certainly wrong, but it explains why Adulf is sometimes venerated as a bishop. Feast (with Botulf ): 17 June.

AA.SS. Iun. III (1701), 398–406;E.B.K. after 1100, i. 131.
