Wolf Finding St Edmund's Head


A missing head and the cousin of man’s best friend! JACOB MILNESTEIN tells us the curious case of St Edmund’s bestial benefactor


“When my body was pierced with arrows and the Danes removed my head and cast it into the forest, this wolf,” he gestured at the animal that lingered now at their sides despite the passing of the dead, “guarded my head, all but starving itself, yet like Christ in the wilderness, avoiding temptation.”
