Cuthbert, Guthlac and the Life of St Antony

Lecture by Benedicta Ward

Given at the St. Theosevia Centre for Christian Spirituality, Oxford, on November 6, 2010

Christians far from Egypt have drawn inspiration from the Life of St Antony, including England’s two most popular pre-Conquest hermit saints: Cuthbert of Lindisfarne (c.634-687) and Guthlac (c.673-714) whose hermitage in the fens became the Abbey of Crowland.
