St Aidan of Northumbria

6th February, 2019

St Aidan of Northumbria

Otherwise known as the Apostle of Northumbria, St Aidan was the founder and first bishop of Lindisfarne monastery.

He is credited with restoring Christianity to Northumbria. Aidan was an Irish monk and started his career in the monastery on the Island of Iona.

A significant achievement for Aidan was the establishment of a centre of learning on Lindisfarne which was to become renowned throughout Europe as a cultural, religious and spiritual hub.

The two lovely gilded angels surmounting Aidan’s shrine are only part of a wonderful collection of of beautiful features in St Aidan’s parish church, Bamburgh. The shrine (near where Aidan died) was dedicated by Archbishop John Sentamu (of York). There has been a place of worship on this site since 635 AD however the latest church is certainly worth a visit.
