Boniface, Saint, Archbishop of Mainz. [Letter to Bugga, Abbess, before 738] in S.Bonifacii et Lulli Epistolae 27

[Letter from Saint Boniface to Abbess Bugga.]
Bugga had asked Boniface's advice about going on a pilgrimage, something her mother had also asked him about (ep.14). Though he refuses to tell her what to do, he does encourage her to seek peace in Rome from her problems with laymen at home. The number of women from England who made pilgrimages to Rome and in this period, some of whom were seduced along the way, would eventually lead him to speak against the practice (ep.70). Boniface apologizes that he has not finished the book Bugga asked for, thanks her for her gifts and asks her prayers.
