1 min read

Saint Eadberht, was Bishop of Lindisfarne, England, from 688 until his death on 6 May 698. He is notable as having founded the holy shrine to his predecessor Saint Cuthbert on the island of Lindisfarne, a place that was to become a centre of great pilgrimage in later years.

It is said that St. Eadberht favoured poverty and long periods of solitude and devotion as part of his service in the bishopric. When he died he was buried in the same location from which Cuthbert’s body had been exhumed earlier the same year.
