Event: Advice/counsel, Healing, Pilgrimage, Praying, ReportingSwithhun 5.post-mortem healing of Anonymous 570

Scholarly Info
Description After hearing the vision of Anonymous 570, Anonymous 571 (the wife of Anonymous 570) advised her husband to summon his servants (Anonymi 1648) so that he could be taken to the holy church and could ask for the intercession of Swithhun 5. Anonymous 570 did this and, as soon as he had begged for a cure, he felt the presence of a sudden remedy. Anonymous 570 got up and was then able to return home and use his own feet. A short time after Anonymous 570 had been cured, he took a few men in a boat to Winchester and reported everything that had happened to Ęthelwold 1.
