Bachelor of Divinity (B.Div)
Winfrid(Boniface) was born of a noble family in Devonshire about 680 A. D. From his early youth he was inclined to the study of spiritual things rather than to temporal knowledge. His father was disappointed at this predilection in his son, since he had intended to make him successor of his estate. Softened by sickness the father finally consented to his son's ecclesiastical ambition and sent him to the monastery Adesconcastre. There he showed earnestness and zeal for learning so that his abbot sent him to the advanced school at Nhutscelle.
