(c. 884—933) bishop of Winchester

Quick Reference

(d. c.932), bishop of Winchester 909–31. Very little is known of this saint. William of Malmesbury records that he was one of seven bishops consecrated on the same day by Plegmund, archbishop of Canterbury, that several of his books survived, and that his unknown tomb could not hide his holiness. Other traces of his cult survive from the 13th century only in two martyrologies and a late entry in one Winchester calendar. Feast: 10 September.
