Wonderful Winchester

ST ETHELWOLD was a native of Winchester, who died in 984 and a great friend of St Dunstan, Abbot of Glastonbury.

In 955 he became Abbot of Abingdon, and a thousand years later, so Canon J Crozier tells me, the Catholic and Anglican Benedictine monks and nuns jointly sang vespers, including the Salve Regina in his honour in the thirteenth century Church of England St Helen's Church.

This was followed by a solemn procession to the site of the old Abbey, no stone of which remains standing today, where the marked sites of the old Saxon and Norman Abbey altars were blessed by Bishop Anthony Emery.

The last lecture in the Abingdon series is on 21 September, by Eric John on Ethelwold's Charters and Reform Movement. Details from Miss E F Aldworth, 55 Bath Street, Ahingdoo. Telephone 0235-24536.
