    Abbot of Wearmouth; a pupil of the Venerable Bede (d. 735). He was a native of Durham, but the dates of his birth and death are unknown. Becoming a monk at Jarrow, he studied under St. Bede and acted as his secretary, writing various works from his dictation. Bede dedicated to him his work "De Arte Metricâ". He was present when Bede died, and wrote to Cuthwin, one of his fellow-pupils, a detailed account of all that happened. After the death of Huitbert, who succeeded Ceolfrid as Abbot of Wearmouth, Cuthbert was elected in his place. His correspondence with Lullus, the disciple and successor of St. Boniface, Archbishop of Mainz, is still preserved. He is also supposed to have written many other letters now lost. Priscus mentions a manuscript bearing his name which contains an addition to Bede's Ecclesiastical History. His letter describing Bede's death is also worthy of note because of the mention therein of the Rogation procession with the Relics of the saints.
