Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wulfstan the Cantor (c.960 – early 11th century), also known as Wulfstan of Winchester, was an Anglo-Saxon monk of the Old Minster, Winchester. He was also a writer, musician, composer and scribe. Wulfstan is most famous for his hagiographic work Vita S. Aethelwoldi. Very little is known about Wulfstan's life. The date of his birth is not known, but personal references within his poem Narratio metrica de S. Swithuno suggest he was a child at the time of St. Swithun's canonization in 971. These references have led scholars to believe that Wulfstan was born c.960 and was given as a child to the Old Minster where he spent his mature life. At the Old Minster, Wulfstan studied under Æthelwold of Winchester, about whom he would write his Vita S. Aethelwoldi.
