Butler’s Lives of the Saints – Saint Lewine, Virgin and Martyr


She was a British virgin, who suffered martyrdom under the Saxons before their conversion to the faith. Her body was honourably kept at Seaford near Lewes in Sussex, till, in 1058, her remains, with those of Saint Idaberga, virgin, and part of those of Saint Oswald, were conveyed into Flanders, and are now deposited in Saint Winock’s abbey at Berg. They have been honoured by many miracles, especially at the time of this translation, as even the century-writers of Magdeburg mention. A history of these miracles, written by Drogo, an eye-witness to several, is published by Solier the Bollandist.
