Animal-tending (1)
 Anonymous 529.vision of three women: Anonymous 529 went to see his horses who were grazing by the water-course which flows by the walls of the city of Winchester. After he had fallen asleep, he set out on his journey back to home, but he suddenly saw two Furies who wore no clothing and were pitch-black with foul bodies. Anonymous 529 fled from the Furies but they pursued him. Suddenly a third emerged from behind the crest of a hill who was terrible in countenance and immense with a huge body and was unlike the earlier two in dress and countenance. Anonymous 529 was struck by a deadly blast of wind from this third woman's garment and fell to the ground, his right side suffering from a great affliction. He limped along until he arrived at the East Gate of Winchester which was dedicated in honour of St Michael.: Wulfstan.NarrMetrSwithuno  i.3, pp. 434-41 (971)

 Swithhun 5.post-mortem healing of Anonymous 529: When Anonymous 529's kinsmen (Anonymi 1497) approached him to take him to the New Minster, Anonymous 529 said that instead, he wanted to be taken to the Old Minster. Anonymous 529 kept vigil there for three days and three nights. Swithhun 5 appeared to Anonymous 529 with the same attire in which he was previously resplendent, when he had appeared to Anonymous 529 in a vision. Swithhun 5 asked Anonymous 529 to remove a blind woman (Anonymous 530) who lay sleeping at his tomb. When this had been done, Anonymous 529 merited to be aided by heavenly mercy. Anonymous 529 looked upwards and saw a man standing, gleaming, upon the summit of the tower in the western part of the church. The man held a golden rope in his hands, by means of which he lowered his bright tunic. The tunic entered the tomb of Swithhun 5 and no-one saw it again. Anonymous 529 was overcome with sudden sleep; as he snatched some rest, the entire tomb shook and, in his vision, someone came to the sick man and, pulling on one side, tugged his weak leg and so restored his limbs to their proper musculature.: Wulfstan.NarrMetrSwithuno  i.3, pp. 442-48 (971)

 Swithhun 5.post-mortem healing of Anonymous 529: When Anonymi 1497 came to take Anonymous 529 to the New Minster, he asked to be taken to the Old Minster instead. He spent three nights and days there in prayer and fasting. Then, Swithhun 5 appeared to him again and ordered him to urge a little blind woman (Anonymous 530), who was sleeping close to his tomb, to go home. Anonymous 529 saw a man of marvelous height held in his hand a golden rope, with which he lowered his folded tunic. It reached Swithhun 5's shrine and went into the tomb. Then, the entire area of the tomb trembled and Anonymous 529 was healed.: Lantfred.TransMiracSwithuni  3, pp. 280-6 (971)

 Anonymous 529.vision of Swithhun 5: Anonymous 529 could take no rest due to the anguish which his great pain inflicted upon him. During the night a certain man resplendent in a snowy-white garment (Swithhun 5) came and visited Anonymous 529. Swithhun 5 was leaning on a staff which shone with jewels and gold and he drew near to where the tormented body of Anonymous 529 lay and spoke to him. Swithhun 5 told Anonymous 529 that if he wished to be cured, he should not allow himself to be carried into the New Minster but should instead be taken to the well-known cross which stood gleaming at the Old Minster, at the tomb of a venerable bishop. Swithhun 5 told Anonymous 529 that he was to keep constant vigil there during the night and be urgent in prayer and then, through Christ's favour, he would receive his former health.: Wulfstan.NarrMetrSwithuno  i.3, pp. 440-42 (971)

He fell asleep and when he woke up he saw two naked dark witches who terrified him and ran after him. Then, he saw another taller woman of a shining white colour, who managed to hurt him on his right side with the blast created by the movement of her garment.
