Abstract

This article provides and edition and translation of previously unpublished materials relating to the cult of St Eadburh, purported to lie buried at Lyminge in Kent, and also to the cult of St Mildrith of Minster-in-Thanet. It is argued that these texts were written by late tenth-century author only known by the first letter of his name, B., and otherwise known as the earliest hagiographer of St Dunstan.
