Description

Excerpt from The English Correspondence of Saint Boniface: Being for the Most Part Letters Exchanged Between the Apostle of the Germans and His English Friends Boniface was born between the years 67 5 and 680. If tradition be coriect in making Crediton in Somersetshire his birthplace, his family must have formed the very end of the wedge which the west-saxons were driving into the British territory on their south-western frontier. There can be little doubt, in any event, that the monastery at Exeter was his first school. From the wars which raged over the whole country the monasteries offered the safest retreat, and children of good birth were commonly sent to them for their education. But as yet the centres of church life in England were situated towards the south and east Exeter stood too remote to catch the waves of moral and intellectual energy which they sent forth. It was only upon joining the community at Nursling, near Winchester, that Boniface experienced the full strength of the new forces.
