ST. TECLA, V. ABBESS

SHE was an Englishwoman, and a holy nun at Winburn in Dorsetshire, who being invited by St. Boniface into Germany, was made abbess of Kitzingen, three miles from Wurtzburg, about the same time that St. Lioba was appointed abbess at Bischofsheim, St. Walburge at Heidenheim in Bavaria, Kynetrade also in Bavaria, and Kynegild in Thuringia, that they might be mistresses of a spiritual life to the new converts of their sex, and train up young ladies to virtue; St. Boniface rightly judging, that the establishment of sanctuaries, which might be models and examples of true piety and schools for the religious education of youth, was a necessary means for supporting religion, and diffusing its holy spirit.
