Book of Saints – Eadbert


EADBERT (EADBERHT) (Saint) Bishop (May 6) (7th century) A monk of Lindisfarne, successor of Saint Cuthbert in that See, which he governed for eleven years. Towards the close of his life he enshrined afresh the incorrupt body of his holy predecessor, directing that his own remains should be laid underneath it. This was duly done when Saint Eadbert passed away on May 6 of that same year, 698. Saint Eadbert was remarkable for his profound knowledge of the Holy Scriptures and for his exceeding charity to the poor.
