Scholarly Info
Description Hewald 1 and Hewald 2 went to the kingdom of the Old Saxons in the hope of winning some in that land to Christ by their preaching. When they reached the land, they went to a certain 'uilicus' asking him to give them safe conduct to the satrapa (viceroy), but he kept them for several days. When the barbarians realized that they might turn the viceroy away from their gods, they put them to death.
