Book of Saints – Wilfrid the Younger

main article for Saint Wilfrid the YoungerArticle

(Saint) Bishop (April 29) (8th century) Educated at Whitby in Yorkshire, while that Abbey was governed by Saint Hilda, Saint Wilfrid attached himself to Saint John of Beverley, whose successor at York he became. He retired in the end to Ripon, where he died A.D. 744. In the accounts of the translations of his Relics there is some confusion between his own and those of his far more celebrated predecessor of the same name (October 12).
