      St. Etheldritha of Croyland, Nun & Virgin
      (also known as ?lfryth, Alfrida,
      Alfreda, Althryda, Ethelfreda)
      ------------------------------------------
      Died 834. Saint Etheldritha was daughter of King Offa of the Mercians
      and his queen, Quindreda. She was betrothed to King Ethelbert of the
      East Angles, who was killed by her father's treachery. Because she had
      wanted to consecrate her life entirely to the service of God, she left
      the court and established herself about 793 in a small cell on Croyland
      Island in the desolate marshes of Lincolnshire. There she lived as a
      recluse for forty years devoting herself to assiduous prayer and the
      practice of Christian virtue. Several miracles attested to her eminent
      sanctity, however, she was best known for her prophesies. Her tomb was
      among those arranged around that of Saint Guthlac, but her relics were
      lost during the ravages of the Danes when they destroyed Croyland Abbey
      in 870 (Benedictines, Farmer, Encyclopaedia, Husenbeth).


      St. Plegmund, Bishop of Canterbury
      ------------------------------------
      Born in Mercia, England; died at Canterbury, England, on August 2, 914.
      Saint Plegmund was a hermit on an island near Chester, called
      Plegmundham after him and later Plemstall, who was noted for his
      holiness and scholarship. He was called to the court of Alfred the Great
      to be his tutor. He helped Alfred write the Old English version of Pope
      Saint Gregory the Great's "On Pastoral Care" (Liber regulae pastoralis)
      and may have been responsible for the compilation of the Anglo-Saxon
      chronicle.

      At that monarch's request, in 890, he was consecrated archbishop of
      Canterbury by Pope Formosus in Rome. He crowned Edward the Elder at
      Kingston in 901, and consecrated the Newminster at Winchester in 908.
      Plegmund travelled to Rome again in 908, probably to secure approval of
      his bishopric by Pope Sergius III, because the consecrations of Formosus
      were condemned in 897 and 905. He returned from Rome with some of the
      relics of Saint Blaise.

      Archbishop Plegmund divided the Wessex dioceses of Winchester and
      Sherbourne into Winchester, Ramsbury, Sherbourne, Wells, and Crediton
      (which was later called Exeter) and consecrated bishops for each of them
      (plus two others) on the same day. His episcopacy was noted for
      promoting learning and developing Canterbury's metropolitan
      jurisdiction. (Benedictines, Delaney, Farmer).

                ------------------------------------------
                Died 834. Saint Etheldritha was daughter of King Offa of the Mercians
                and his queen, Quindreda. She was betrothed to King Ethelbert of the
                East Angles, who was killed by her father's treachery. Because she had
                wanted to consecrate her life entirely to the service of God, she left
                the court and established herself about 793 in a small cell on Croyland
                Island in the desolate marshes of Lincolnshire. There she lived as a
                recluse for forty years devoting herself to assiduous prayer and the
                practice of Christian virtue. Several miracles attested to her eminent
                sanctity, however, she was best known for her prophesies. Her tomb was
                among those arranged around that of Saint Guthlac, but her relics were
                lost during the ravages of the Danes when they destroyed Croyland Abbey
                in 870 (Benedictines, Farmer, Encyclopaedia, Husenbeth).


                St. Plegmund, Bishop of Canterbury
                ------------------------------------
                Born in Mercia, England; died at Canterbury, England, on August 2, 914.
                Saint Plegmund was a hermit on an island near Chester, called
                Plegmundham after him and later Plemstall, who was noted for his
                holiness and scholarship. He was called to the court of Alfred the Great
                to be his tutor. He helped Alfred write the Old English version of Pope
                Saint Gregory the Great's "On Pastoral Care" (Liber regulae pastoralis)
                and may have been responsible for the compilation of the Anglo-Saxon
                chronicle.

                At that monarch's request, in 890, he was consecrated archbishop of
                Canterbury by Pope Formosus in Rome. He crowned Edward the Elder at
                Kingston in 901, and consecrated the Newminster at Winchester in 908.
                Plegmund travelled to Rome again in 908, probably to secure approval of
                his bishopric by Pope Sergius III, because the consecrations of Formosus
                were condemned in 897 and 905. He returned from Rome with some of the
                relics of Saint Blaise.

                Archbishop Plegmund divided the Wessex dioceses of Winchester and
                Sherbourne into Winchester, Ramsbury, Sherbourne, Wells, and Crediton
                (which was later called Exeter) and consecrated bishops for each of them
                (plus two others) on the same day. His episcopacy was noted for
                promoting learning and developing Canterbury's metropolitan
                jurisdiction. (Benedictines, Delaney, Farmer).
