County: Holy Island of Lindisfarne
Born in Ireland, St. Aidan became a monk and then Bishop of Lindisfarne
, a small island off the northeast coast of England. Known for his “knowledge of the Bible, his learning, his eloquent preaching, his holiness, his distaste for pomp, his kindness to the poor, and the miracles attributed to him.” His legacy lives on with the island, where he died in 651.
