Saint Dunstan (d. May 19, 988) ended his lengthy career in the Church as the Archbishop of Canterbury. His work restored monastic life in England and reformed the English church. He also served as an important minister of state to several English kings. He was canonized in 1029, and was the most popular saint in England for nearly two centuries, having gained fame for the many stories of his greatness.
