Leofwine (bishop of Lindsey)
|Bishop of Lindsey|
|See||Diocese of Lindsey|
|In office||circa 953|
|Predecessor||Burgheard or Eadberht|
Leofwine was a medieval Bishop of Lindsey.
He was consecrated about 953 and died sometime after. This was a reconstitution of the see after a break in the succession since the death of Eadberht of Lindsey in the previous century. He combined the see with Dorchester in 956, and afterwards the combined see is usually known as Bishop of Lindsey. It appears to have covered Lindsey and Leicester.
