|Bishop of Sherborne|
|Term ended||8 January 1002|
|Died||8 January 1002|
Wulfsige (or Wulfsige III) was a medieval Bishop of Sherborne and is considered a saint.
Wulfsige was nominated about 993. He died on 8 January 1002.
Wulfsige took part in the tenth century Benedictine monastic reform movement in England. He had been a monk of Glastonbury Abbey under Dunstan, became a monk of Westminster Abbey during Dunstan's tenure as Bishop of London, was appointed abbot of Westminster, probably from before 966, when he first occurs. He was appointed to Sherborne by King Edgar the Peaceful, and held the abbacy along with the bishopric of Sherborne until at least 997. It was as bishop of Sherborne that Wulfsige presided over the refoundation of the cathedral community as a Benedictine abbey in 998. In 1998 a one-day conference was held to celebrate the refoundation of the abbey of Sherbone, and a collection of essays, St Wulfsige and Sherborne, was published in 2005.
