St WINEBALD

Christian Saint

Also known as WUNEBALD

Brother of St WILLIBRORD with whom he set off on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

But Winebald fell sick and got no further than Rome. On recovery he found he could study there. He also met St BONIFACE-OF-MAINZ who persuaded him to become an evangelist in Germany.

On this mission he met up with the Bishop of Eichstadt who unexpectedly turned out to be his brother.

So Bishop aka Brother Willibrord put in a good word and set him up with their sister St WALBURGA at a monastery in Heidenheim.
