Personal details
Feast day21 October

Tuda of Lindisfarne (died 664), also known as Saint Tuda, was appointed to succeed Colman as Bishop of Lindisfarne. He served for less than a year. Although raised in Ireland, he was a staunch supporter of Roman practices, being tonsured in the Roman manner and celebrating Easter according to the Roman Computus.[1] However, he was consecrated as bishop in Ireland.[2]


Upon Colman's departure from Lindisfarne, he requested the king to appoint Abbot Eata of Melrose Abbey as his successor as Abbot of Lindisfarne. Tuda was appointed bishop of the Northumbrians.[3][4][5] Tuda had been educated in the south of Ireland.

Tuda became bishop in 664 and died in that same year.[6] The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (in its entry for 656) includes a 664 charter for the minster of Medhamsted, or Peter-borough, which lists Tuda as among the consecrators.

The same Chronicle for the year 664 records that Tuda was one of many who died in the plague of that year.[1]

Tuda's feast day is 21 October.[4]
