Wulfhilda of Barking - quite a telling name. :nick

Zitat:
Wulfhilda was brought up at Wilton Abbey in Wiltshire, where, it is siad, the King fell in love with her. It is generally said that this king was Edgar the Peaceable (though he is occasionally called Edward). Presents, messages, offers being of no avail, he gained over the lady's aunt, Abbess Wenflaeda of Wherwell who, feigning illness, sent for her niece to attend on her. When Wulfhilda arrived at the house, she found she had been entrapped; and, upon conversing with the King, she found his fervour so alarming, that she fled, leaving her sleeve in his hand, and escaping through the drains.

Wulfhilda or Wulfthrith - what a mess!


Zitat:

She is often, incorrectly, confounded with St. Wulfthrith.

Now about this Wulf-Thrith: :nick

Zitat:
Wulfthrith was a member of a noble Anglo-Saxon family who became a nun at Wilton, recieving the veil from the hands of St. Aethelwold, Bishop of Winchester.

Here, she was seduced by King Edgar the Peaceable and later gave birth to St. Edith of Wilton. Great was the scandal, for the nun's habit was the one thing which was to be respected. The Archbishop of Canterbury, St. Dunstan, condemned the King to abstain from wearing his crown for seven years.

After the death of his wife, Edgar tried to persuade Wulfthrith to leave her convent and marry him, but she preferred to remain with her daughter at Wilton where she made such progress in all virtues that she was chosen abbess, and eventually honoured as a saint.

Scandalous, these Anglo-Saxons! :teufel

Wait a moment ... so Wulfthrith was a saint, also? Even though she violated her celibacy? (which was clearly Edward's fault).

That is quite a religious family ... the mother a saint, the daughter a saint and the father a rapist.

Thrith seems to be worse than a wulf! :shock:

Zitat:
The poet speaks about Higlac's wife, Higd, a wise and peaceful Queen, and contrasts her with Thrith, a haughty and vicious woman who sentenced men who gazed upon her beauty too long to death by the sword.

But Thrith had been married to Offa across the ocean, who had made her into a good, generous woman.

Just in case somebody does not know Wulfhilda: :cool:

Zitat:
Saint Wulfhilda was raised in the abbey of Wilton. When she was a novice, King Saint Edgar sought her hand in marriage, but she had a vocation that was irrevocable. Her aunt, Abbess Wenfleda of Wherwell, invited the young novice to become her successor, but it was just a ploy to lure her from Wilton. When she arrived at Wherwell, she found the king waiting for her and her aunt willing to allow him to seduce her. Wulfhilda escaped through the drains despite the chaperons inside and the guards outside the convent. The king pursued her back to Wilton and caught her in the cloister, but she escaped his grasp and took refuge in the sanctuary among the altars and relics. Thereafter Edgar renounced his claim on her and took her cousin Saint Wilfrida as his mistress instead.

Wulfhilda went on to found and serve as the first abbess of the convent of Horton in Dorsetshire. Later she was appointed abbess of the convent of Barking, which had been restored by King Edgar and endowed with several churches in Wessex towns. During this period she was credited with several miracles, including the multiplication of drinks when King Edgar, Saint Ethelwold, and a naval officer from Sandwich visited the abbey.
