Book of Saints – Brithwald


BRITHWALD (Saint) Bishop (January 9) (8th century) One of the early Archbishops of Canterbury, the successor of Saint Theodore. He was, says Butler, “a living rule of perfection to his Church.” Saint Brithwald died after nearly forty years of Episcopate, A.D. 731, and was buried at Reculver at the edge of the Isle of Thanet, where at that time there existed a small monastery. His name is frequently spelled Bercthwald.
