On my blog, in which I write about Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, and Merovingian abbesses, monks, and hermits, there is a fairly lengthy post on St. Hilda of Whitby along with some photos. St. Hilda and her sister St. Hereswith are my patron saints, so I have a passion for these great Anglo-Saxon saints. I hope you will visit the Saints’ Bridge site. On the home page towards the bottom, there is a listing of all the saints I have written on with links to each of them.

My interests include illuminated manuscripts; pilgrimage; Franciscan and Celtic spirituality; Shakers; Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, and Merovingian abbesses and their double monasteries; comfy cute shoes; Native American spirituality; and genealogy.
