Book of Saints – Drithelm


DRITHELM (Saint) (August 17) (7th century) A Northumbrian, who after leading a reprehensibly worldly life, was terrified by a vision of the Judgment to come and of Hell. In consequence of this he embraced a career of severe penance as a monk of Melrose, persevering therein to the day of his holy death, about A.D. 700.
