Bishop of York known for his kindness.He personally healed a dumb boy who had lost all his hair due to ringworm. (We're not sure what made the boy dumb — perhaps it was the shock of going bald.)
Syllable by syllable, the Bishop taught the boy to speak, while tending to his scalp until upon it flourished as fine a head of hair as could possibly be.
Why Beverley? Because he built the monastery there, and it was where he went for his retirement.
