Edmund of Durham
|Bishop of Durham|
|See||Diocese of Durham|
Symeon of Durham relates the story that Edmund was a monk of Durham Cathedral, and that he was chosen as bishop because a strange voice that came from the tomb of Saint Cuthbert insisted that Edmund be selected as the next bishop. His election was confirmed by King Cnut of England. Edmund died while visiting the English royal court at Gloucester in 1041.
