Scholarly Info
Description Oda 1 went to Northumbria to bring away the holy bodies of saints, in whom that district had once been so fertile. So it came about that he saw to his grief the church of the excellent father Wilfrid 2 at Ripon in the state of ruin brought on it by the Danes; he cleared away the rubble over the tomb, and respectfully moved the relics to Canterbury.
