Scholarly Info
Description Mildrith 1 was sent overseas by her mother Eormenburg 1 to learn monastic discipline. Then she returned to her homeland and entered the monastery she had built as its abbess, together with 70 other virgins [Anonymi 10068], who were gathered by her mother and the king [presumably Ecgberht 3] and who received the veil from archbishop Theodore 1. There she lived serving God and obtaining the life eternal, which later was confirmed by miracles.
