St. Dunstan, Abbot

Born 945.—Died 978.

A Saxon nobleman, who became a Benedictine monk, Abbot of Glastonbury Abbey, and Archbishop of Canterbury, was the most learned man of his time.  He learnt every art then known, and first used stained glass and organs in England.  He lived for some time in a cave, and is said to have had personal battles with Satan, who appeared under different shapes to tempt him.
