St. Walpurga or Walburga (c. AD 710 – 25 February 777 or 779), was an Anglo-Saxon missionary to the Frankish Empire. She was canonized on 1 May c. 870 by Pope Adrian II. During her life, she traveled to what would become Germany to assist her uncle, St. Boniface in evangelizing the still-pagan Germans. Because of her rigorous training, she was able to write her brother Winibald’s vita and an account in Latin of his travels in Palestine. As a result, she is often called the first female author of both England and Germany.
