Event: Disobedience, Miracle, OrderingAnonymi 1621.disobedience
||Ęthelwold 1 commanded that, when any infirm person was divinely restored to health through Swithhun 5's medication, the monks should abandon every worldly activity and together go to the church and render a hymn to God. The monks (Anonymi 1621) began to think that it was an excessive hardship that their night-time rest should be taken from them and thus they disobeyed the orders of Ęthelwold 1.
*As Lapidge notes (p. 475), this chapter is based on chapter 10 of Lantfred's 'Translatio et miracula S. Swithuni'.
