Saint Wulsin of Sherborne was a Benedictine monk and a spiritual student and close confidant of Saint Dunstan of Canterbury. He was named by Dunstan around 966 AD to be superior to the restored Benedictine community in Westminster, England. Later, Wulsin became an abbot of Westminster in 980.
In 933, Wulsin was appointed the bishop of Sherborne, England. He continued to serve as abbot. He rebuilt and revitalized the Church in Sherborne and founded a Benedictine monastery in his diocese. Many of his letters have survived the centuries.
