Celtic and Old English Saints        22 January

* St. Brithwold of Sarum

St. Brithwold of Sarum, Bishop
(Berhtwald, Brihtwald)
Died 1045. Saint Brithwold was a monk at Glastonbury in Wiltshire who
was chosen bishop of Ramsbury in 995, and governed it for 50 years.
After his death the see was moved to Old Sarum. His fame comes not from
his long episcopate, but from his prophecy and vision concerning the
successor to Saint Edward the Confessor (f.d. October 13). He was a
great benefactor to Malmesbury and Glastonbury, where he was buried
(Benedictines, Coulson, Farmer).
