ELPHAGE (ALPHAGE) (Saint) Bishop (March 12) (10th century) Called the Elder to distinguish him from his more famous namesake, the Martyr of Canterbury and Greenwich. Saint Elphege the Elder, a monk of singularly holy life, succeeded Saint Birstan in the See of Winchester, where he died, and his relics were enshrined (A.D. 951).
