He died at Langres, on extremely old age, while on his way to Rome, but later brought back. Also some of the bones of Aidan 1, first bishop of Lindisfarne. His other bones were taken by Colmán 1 to Scottia; Bede 1 is again our authority. Praise is given at Glastonbury to the confessor Benignus 1, a local hermit, whose remarkable miracles inspired the monks nearby to venerate and translate him. In the house [of Glastonbury] are buried King Edmund 14, the renewer of the place, and his son King Edgar 11, who, remembering his father with gratitude, crowned his gifts with the grant of expensive properties.
