Adrian (Hadrian) of
Canterbury. Benedictine Abbot.
Adrian was born in north
Africa. Considering himself unworthy to accept the role as Archbishop of
Canterbury from the Pope he agreed to accompany St.Theodore, who was chosen in
his stead, to Canterbury as an adviser.
Theodore made Adrian
abbot of SS. Peter and Paul Benedictine monastery in Canterbury which was later
re-named St. Augustine's.
Adrian established it as
a flourishing monastic school for scripture, languages, science and arts, it
became a centre of excellence for English learning. Adrian taught there for 39
years until his death on 9th January 710.
