ST. BRITHWALD, ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY

HE was abbot of Glastenbury, but resigning that dignity, came to the little monastery of Riculf, or Riculver, near the isle of Thanet, in Kent that he might improve himself in the study of the Holy Scriptures, in the neighborhood of St. Theodorus; after whose death he was promoted to the see or Canterbury, in 692, in which he sat thirty-seven years and six months, a living rule of perfection to this church. He died in 731. See John of Glastenbury, published by Hearne; William of Malmesbury, in the antiquities of Glastenbury, published by Thomas Gale; and Bede,1. 5. c. 9, and 24.
