(Saint) Bishop (February 15) (11th century) An English missionary in Sweden and Norway, favoured by the Christian King Olaf of Norway. He was the instrument chosen by Divine Providence for the conversion of the similarly named King Olaf of Sweden. Saint Sigfrid, made Bishop of Wexiow, at length rested from his long life of toil, and his remains were enshrined in his Cathedral. Some writers say that he was canonised by Pope Hadrian IV; but his name does not occur in the Roman Martyrology.
