Butler’s Lives of the Saints – Saint Humbert, Bishop of the East-Angles, Martyr


Saint Emund was crowned king by this holy prelate on the 25th of December, in 855; and Saint Humbert was martyred by the hands of the same Danes, and about the same time with him, and was likewise honoured by our ancestors amongst the martyrs on the same day.
