      * St. Elwin of Lindsey
      * St. Salome and St. Judith
      =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


      St. Cocha, Abbess of Ross-Benchuir,
      Who Nursed Saint Ciaran
      -----------------------------------------------
      6th century. Saint Cocha is said to have raised Saint Ciaran of Saighir
      (f.d. March 5) and later to have become abbess of Ross-Benchuir
      (Benedictines).


      St. Elwin (Aethelwine) of Lindsey, Bishop
      --------------------------------------------------
      Died 692. This Saint Elwin may be the same person as Saint Ethelwin of
      Lindsey (f.d. May 3), although the date given for the latter is 8th
      century. Farmer states that today's Elwin studied in Ireland. He was
      consecrated bishop of Lindsey in 680 by Saint Theodore the Greek of
      Canterbury (f.d. September 19) at the request of King Ethelred of
      Mercia. The venerable Saint Bede (f.d. May 25) calls him a 'vir
      sanctus,' Elwin does not appear to have had an early cultus
      (Benedictines, Farmer).


      Ss. Salome and Judith, Virgins
      -----------------------------------------------
      9th century. Saints Judith and Salome are said to have been English
      women of royal blood, perhaps close relatives. They were anchorites at
      the monastery of Oberaltaich in Bavaria, Germany.

      Although the tradition is late, it has been suggested that Salome is
      Edburga, the beautiful, but rather shocking, daughter of King Offa of
      Mercia. She mistakenly poisoned her husband, King Beorhtric of the West
      Saxons, instead of an enemy. She was driven out of England for having
      committed this outrage. The Emperor Charlemagne gave her a rich
      monastery to govern, but he soon deposed her because of her scandalous
      behaviour.

      Thereafter she wandered about Europe with her maidservant begging for
      alms at Pavia (Patavium), Italy, or Passau (Patavia), Germany. If Asser
      made a mistake in his record and she was found in Passau, there is a
      link between Edburga and Salome, because her biographer said that the
      saint came to the monastery from Passau. Thus, the princess may have
      repented by submitting to the penitential life of a hermit. Reputedly
      Judith, her aunt, was sent to find her and joined her in the monastery.

      Another version of the story expands on the above. It relates that only
      the repentant Salome was an exiled Anglo-Saxon princess and that Judith
      was a Bavarian widow who befriended her.

      It is evident that the story is highly uncertain, though the saints are
      real. Sometimes Judith is the princess, at other times Salome, and
      still others both are of royal blood (Attwater2, Benedictines, Coulson,
      Encyclopaedia, Farmer).
