ST. BRINSTAN, BISHOP OF WINCHESTER

WAS raised for his eminent sanctity to that see in 931, on the resignation of the pious bishop Trithestan, who died the following year. It was his daily custom to wash the feet of a number of poor whom he served at table; he also every day said mass, and at night repeated the psalms for the faithful departed. He died the 4th of Nov. 934. See Malmesb. de Pontif.1. 2, p. 242; Godwin, de Ep. Ang., &c.
