For all that Lincolnshire seems to be a pretty out of the way place, as far as Orthodox Christianity is concerned, it was once a hub of activity and holiness. There are at least 101 Orthodox Saints closely associated with Lincolnshire. One could add many others who passed through (several of them giving their names to places on the way – for example St. Helen who found the Holy Cross and her son St. Constantine who passed this way having become Emperor in York). Here is a short list:
St. Oswald (d. 642); St. Ostrythe; St. Ailred (Ethelred) (d. 716); St. Werburgh Abbess (circa 785); St. Chad (d. 672); St. Botolph (d 680); St. Adulph (d. 680); St. Simon the Zealot; St. Guthlac (673- 714); St. Pega (Pea) (d. 719); St. Bertram (8th Century); St. Cissa (8th Century); St. Etheldritha (Alfreda) (d. 835); the Martyrs of Croyland: Sts. Theodore Abbot, Askega Prior, Swethin Subprior, Elfgete Deacon, Sabinus Subdeacon, Grimkell, Agamund Centenarians, Herbert Chanter, Egred, Ulric Servers, Egelred and the Seventy Companions (martyred 870); St. Thurketyl (887-975); St. Helen and St. Constantine; St. Hibald (d. 690); St. Paulinus (d. 644); St. Herefrid (d. 747); St. Aethelheard; St. Elwin (Aethelwine); St. Aldwyn (5th Century); St. Edilhun and St. Egbert; St. Erkenwald (d. 693); St. Werburgh (d. 700); St. Werburg of Mercia (d. 785).
