Etheldreda, Princess, Abbess, Saint

Etheldreda’s World - Princess, Abbess, Saint by Dr Charles Moseley from Oxford University, who wrote this book to mark 1,350 years since St Etheldreda founded a monastery on the site of what is now Ely cathedral in 673 AD. What was it like to be a Princess (c. 636- 679 AD) an Abbess in a land where the old gods were still honoured by many? What power did women in her position wield? What did it mean to be revered as a Saint? This excellent book is available from the Presbytery. Price £12.99.
