Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  1 Addressing Cenwulf 6 and the brethren of Winchester (Anonymi 1703), ∆lfric 94 wrote that he had composed a Life of St ∆thelwold 40, lest perchance his acts should wholly be given to oblivion because of the scarcity of writers.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  2 ∆thelwold 1's parents (Anonymi 1704) lived at Winchester
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  2 Anonymous 679 saw a dream of herself sitting before the door of her house. There appeared a lofty standard that surrounded the woman with its fringes. She also saw a golden eagle come out of her mouth and fly away.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  3 Anonymous 679 felt that the soul had come to the boy (∆thelwold 1) she was carrying in her womb.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  3 When ∆thelwold 1 was washed with the sacred baptism, his parents (Anonymi 1704) called him ∆thelwold 1.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  4 When Edwin 14 was sitting with her child (∆thelwold 1) on her lap, a stormy wind arose, so strong that she could not go to church as she had resolved. But suddenly she was found sitting with the infant in church where the priest was celebrating mass.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  5 At ∆thelstan 18's orders ∆thelwold 1 was tonsured and consecrated into the priestly orders by ∆lfheah 44.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  5 ∆lfheah 44 ordained at the same time Dunstan 1, ∆thelwold 1 and ∆thelstan 38
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  5 ∆lfheah 44 prophesied that Dunstan 1 and ∆thelwold 1 would become bishops, whereas ∆thelstan 38 would not continue in the holy life he had begun.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  6 ∆thelwold 1 placed himself under the instruction of Dunstan 1 at Glastonbury.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  6 ∆thelwold 1 received the habit of the monastic order from Dunstan 1.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  7 ∆thelwold 1 determined to go to lands across the sea, to train himself more perfectly in sacred books and monastic discipline, but Eadgifu 4 prevented his attempts, advising Eadred 16 not to let such a man depart from his kingdom.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  7 ∆thelwold 1 took charge of Abingdon monastery with Dunstan 1's permission and according to Eadred 16's wish. Clerics from Glastonbury, Winchester and London followed him. In a short space of time he collected a flock of monks, over whom he was ordained abbot by the king's orders.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  8 Eadred 16 went to Abingdon to plan himself the structure of the buildings.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  8 The Northumbrians (Anonymi 1706) who went with Eadred 16 to Abingdon drank a lot of mead and got intoxicated after their fashion.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  9 Eadred 16 died shortly after his journey to Abingdon
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  9 ∆thelwold 1 built and completed a noble temple in honour of St Mary.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  9 Dunstan 1 was elected to the bishopric of Worcester
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  10 ∆thelwold 1 sent Osgar 1 to Fleury to learn the customs of the rule and then expound them by his teaching to the brethren at home.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  10 One day ∆thelwold 1 saw ∆lfstan 38 prepare food and, entering the kitchen, saw that he had cleaned all the vessels and the floor. ∆thelwold 1 asked him to put his hand in the boiling water and draw out a morsel of food, which he did feeling no heat.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  11 While he was working on a building, a huge post fell on him, threw him into a pit and broke nearly all his ribs on one side.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  11 Edgar 11 chose ∆thelwold 1 for the see of Winchester and Dunstan 1 consecrated him.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  12, 14 ∆thelwold 1, with the permission of Edgar 11, expelled the secular clerics (Anonymi 1707) from the Old Minster. Edgar 11 sent Wulfstan 15, a 'minister' of his, who commanded Anonymi 1707 to give place to the monks (Anonymi 1708) or to accept the monastic habit.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  13 While Anonymi 1707 were singing for the communion, Anonymi 1708, who were standing outside the church, were exhorted to enter the church through the singing they heard.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  14 Eadsige 8, Wulfsige 24 and Wilstan 1 were the three only clerics of the Old Minster who were converted to the regular way of life.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  14 Anonymi 1707 put poison in ∆thelwold 1's drink. His face turned pale and his bowels were greatly racked by the strength of the poison.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  16 ∆thelwold 1 expelled the clerics (Anonymi 1709) from the New Minster with Edgar 11's consent.

Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  17 ∆thelwold 1 made Osgar 1 abbot of Abingdon.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  17 ∆thelwold 1 placed religious women in a nunnery, over whom he set ∆thelthryth 7 as mother superior.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  17 ∆thelwold 1 bought from the king the place at Ely, which was then deserted and given up to the royal treasury. He stationed in it many monks, (Anonymi 1711) over whom he placed Beorhtnoth 19.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  17 ∆thelwold 1 acquired from Edgar 11 and the nobles of the land a place, previously called Medeshamestede. It was now called Burh. There he assembled monks and placed over them as abbot Ealdwulf 18.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  17 He acquired the place at Thorney, which he committed to monks (Anonymi 1713), and when he had constructed a monastery, he appointed Godemann 6 as abbot.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  18 Swithhun 5's body was translated at the time when ∆thelwold 1 was preaching.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  18 With Edgar 11's consent monasteries were founded everywhere, partly by the counsel and action of Dunstan 1 and partly by that of ∆thelwold 1, some with monks, some with nuns, living according to the rule under abbots and abbesses.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  19 ∆thelwold 1 went round the individual monasteries, establishing good usages by admonishing the obedient and correcting the foolish with rods.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  20 ∆thelwold 1 did not indulge in the flesh of animals or birds except once for three months, when forced by great infirmity - and this he did at the command of Dunstan 1 - and again during the sickness from which he died.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  21 One of ∆thelwold 1's cleric (Edwin 14), who had been appointed to carry his ampulla, took less oil than was required, and even this he lost on the way. The clerk retraced the road he had come and discovered the ampulla, which before had not been half full, lying full of oil.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  22 Edwin 14 stole the purse of a guest (Anonymous 681) by the instigation of the devil.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  22 ∆thelwold 1 spoke to the congregation asking for the thief to return the purse which he had stolen. After three days, when the bishop addressed the chapter again, Edwin 14, who was sitting there, was bound invisibly with his arms stuck to him beneath his cloak. Edwin 14 was constrained to confess to ∆thelwold that he had the purse. When the bishop blessed him after his confession, his arms were loosed up.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  23 ∆thelwold 1 ordered the brethren to work alongside the workmen during the restoration of the church. One day Goda 11 fell from the roof without suffering any injury.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  24 Theodric 2 went to see ∆thelwold 1 at night, while the bishop was reading. Theodric 2 stood a long time marveling at how diligently he kept his eyes fixed on the page. Then, Theodric 2 himself began to read, trying if he could sharpen his sound eyes to the reading as diligently as the bishop had done his failing eyes.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  25 ∆thelwold 1 fell asleep on the book he was reading. The burning candle fell on the page and continued to burn until a brother (Leofred 2) arrived and found the page undamaged.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  26 ∆thelwold 1 died in the twenty-second year of his episcopate, on 1 August

Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  27 He was a citizen of Oxford
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  27 ∆lfhelm 16 was warned in dreams to go to the shrine of ∆thelwold 1, and was told the name of a monk (Wulfstan 37) who would lead him to the tomb.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  27 Wulfstan 37 led ∆lfhelm 16 to the tomb of ∆thelwold 1, where ∆lfhelm 16 was healed from his blindness.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  28 A thief (Anonymous 678) was sent to prison by ∆lfheah 44. There he had a vision of ∆thelwold 1 and was set free on the spot. The thief went to ∆lfheah 44 and told him in detail what had been done for him. ∆lfheah released him, letting him go away uninjured.
Event ∆lfric.Vit∆thelwoldi  24 Theodric 2 had a vision of someone unknown to him, who struck him a blow in the eyes with his fingers. The pain afflicted him for many days.
