Scholarly Info
Description Evesham was the foundation of Bishop Ecgwine 1. There had been a little church there from olden days, possibly the work of the British. There Ecgwine 1 spent many watchful nights in solitude, and was found worthy to enjoy the consolation of seeing the Mother of God and speaking with her. She told him explicitly and unambiguously to found her a monastery at that place, a pleasure for her, though a toil for him.
