Æthelwine (Ethelwine or Elwin) (d. circa (c.) 700) was the second bishop of Lindsey from circa 680,[1] and is regarded as a saint.[2]

Other than a reference in Bede's Historia to him and his family, very little is known of him. His brother was Edilhum, who was abbot of Peartney Abbey. His sister Ethelhild was an abbess. He probably died around 700. His feast day is 3 May or 29 June.[2] The even less well evidenced Saint Aldwyn is sometimes said to have been his brother.
