ST AUGUSTINE

When the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes settled in southern England in the fifth and sixth centuries, they brought their own gods with them. Before long Christianity, introduced by the Romans, had disappeared. In Rome in about 590, Pope Gregory I noticed some blond child slaves in the streets. Told they were English (Angles), he is said to have exclaimed: "They may be Angles, but they look like angels." The story goes that as a result of this encounter he appointed Augustine, head of a Roman monastery, to take 40 monks to England to reconvert the people to Christianity. In 597 Augustine landed in England and was welcomed by King Ethelbert of Kent. Although the missionaries encountered strong opposition among the Anglo-Saxons, the king was sympathetic to Augustine's mission and agreed to be baptized a Christian. Very soon, many of the English followed him.
