Description

Willibrord was a seventh century Northumbrian missionary saint who studied in Ireland under Saint Egbert until his early 30s, and was then sent to preach to the Frisians, in the modern Netherlands. He became the first Bishop of Utrecht and died in Luxembourg. There are many monuments, chapels and wells devoted to him.

In this comprehensive book, Frans Lutters explores Willibrord's miracles and other events to draw out spiritual insights in the light of anthroposophy. He examines, in particular, Willibrord's relationship with Charibert of Laon, the maternal grandfather of Charlemagne who was central to the Christianisation of western Europe.

This is a fascinating study which uncovers the influence of a compelling saint, largely lost to history.
