Reginald of Durham

Reginald of Durham

Reginald of Durham (fl. 1162 — 1173) was an English monk and hagiologist.

Reginald, a monk at Durham, was a hagiologist who wrote about the lives of saints. His best known work is about the hermit Saint Godric of Finchale. He also wrote about the 7th century Saint Cuthbert of Lindisfarne, about Saint Oswald, a 7th century marytred King of Northumbria, and about the life of St Ebba (615 — 683), daughter of the King of Northumbria who founded a monastery at Ebchester. Ebba was the abbess of a mixed monastery of monks and nuns at Coldingham.Shortly after Ebba's death, the monastery was accidentally burned down in 683 AD. The destructive fire was said to have been an act of God resulting from the sins of its inmates.

Note that the alternative name Reginald of Coldingham, while perpetuated in the "Dictionary of National Biography" and the "Dictionary of Medieval Latin", is spurious.
