 Eorcenwald 1.dividing a river: One when [Eorcenwald 1] was lame and was visiting his parishes in a litter, he happened to come to the bank of a river in spate. His companions were at a loss, for the sick man could cross neither on horseback nor on foot, and they were afraid the litter might sink in the surging water; but suddenly the tumult died away, and the whole river parted at that point, though as soon as the bishop had crossed with his retinue the water, which had stood apart and curled up into a cliff of waves, was restored to its bed. Bede 1 tells us that many invalids were cured by touching this litter. : WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  ii.73.10-11
