St Oswald

The Rev Marshall B Lang, BD, Whittingehame

It is hoped that there will be further articles on the saints of Scotland. Political and economic threats to the parish system could be countered by knowledge of those to whom local parishes are bound.  Whittingehame claims the saintly patronage of Oswald, King of Northumbria, of whose kingdom the parish was once a part.  What is known of Oswald is outlined, including the connection with Iona and his request for and support of Aidan as missionary.  Links with Oswald are traced all over Great Britain, and collects made available from ancient sources by H J Wotherspoon are appended.
