Scholarly Info
Description As Anonymous 575 was approaching Winchester, he met Pippin 4 who asked him where he was going. Anonymous 575 replied simply that he was going wherever he could find food; Pippin 4 urged him to go to the tomb of Swithhun 5 for the sake of twofold sustenance. But Anonymous 575 did not know the way to the church, so Pippin 4 led him there. After having spent only a single night in prayer there Anonymous 575 was found worthy to receive his cure at daybreak.
