||Oswald 8 returned to England from Fleury shocked by the news that his uncle Oda 1 was dying. By the time he landed at Dover, Oda 1 had already died. From there Oswald 8 travelled to Oscytel 5 archbishop of York, a near relation of his, which whom he stayed for several years. Meanwhile Dunstan 1 demitted the sees of Worcester and London, and transferred to Canterbury. Well aware of Oswald 8's holiness and practical abilities, he prevailed on the king [Edgar 11] to give him the see of Worcester. The episcopal see was dedicated to St Peter. Oswald 8 built a second church in the same precinct in the name of the Mother of God, moved monks there, and lived happily with them. On Dunstan 1's advice the king gave Oswald 8 the vacant see of York, but he would not let him give up the see of Worcester. Oswald 8 also invited to England men of letters, such as Abbo 1, monk of Fleury, who at the instance of Archbishop Dunstan 1 embellished literature with a Passion of Edmund 6 the Martyr. Oswald 8 over many years proved himself up to holding both sees, though he used to visit Worcester more often. He outlived Dunstan 1 and Ęthelwold 1, reproducing the authority of the former, the efficiency of the latter, and the holiness of both.
