Archbishop Laurence converts Eadbald Featured Laurentius Print

Archbishop Laurence converts Eadbald

Laurence, Archbishop of Canterbury, convinces King Eadbald of Kent to convert to Christianity. Eadbald, a pagan, succeeded his father Ethelbert (who had converted to Christianity) in 616 A.D. a major setback to the growth of the Church in England. In the tale related by Bede, Archbishop Laurence had all but given up on converting Eadbald, but experienced a vision in which he was whipped by St Peter. The following morning he showed the marks made by the whipping to the King, which was enough to instantly convert him. Date: Circa 617 A.D
