Æthelwine of Lindsey
|Bishop of Lindsey|
|Term ended||c. 700|
|Feast day||3 May or 20 June|
Other than a couple of references in Bede's Historia to Æthelwine and his family, very little is known of him. One brother, named Edilhun (i.e. Æthelhun), a "youth of great capacity of the English nobility", is said by Bede to have died of the plague while visiting a monastery in Ireland in the year 664. Another brother, Aldwin, was abbot at Partney, and a sister, Æthelhild, was an abbess. Bede tells of her visiting Queen Osthryth at Bardney Abbey in about 697. She was still alive when Bede was writing in the 720s.
