Saint Hilda of Whitby Biography

St Hilda of Whitby was the daughter of Hereric and Breguswith. Sister of Saint Hereswitha. Grand-niece of King Saint Edwin of Northumbria.

Baptized in 627 at age thirteen by Saint Paulinus of York. She Lived as a single laywoman until age 33 when she became a Benedictine nun at the monastery of Chelles in France.

Abbess at Hartlepool, Northumberland, England. Abbess of the double monastery of Whitby, Streaneshalch.

Abbess to Saint Wilfrid of York, Saint John of Beverley, and three other bishops. Patroness and supporter of learning and culture, including the work of the poet Caedmon.

Hilda and her houses followed the Celtic liturgy and rule, but many houses had adopted the continental Benedictine rule and the Roman liturgy.

St Hilda of Whitby convened a conference in 664 AD to help settle on a single rule. When the conference settled on the Roman and Benedictine, they were adopted throughout England, and Hilda insured the observance of her houses.
