The Legend of St. Frideswide. Frideswide was sought in marriage by
Algar, Earl of Leicester, who attempted to carry her off by force, but
she, despairing of mortal help, appealed to heaven for assistance, and
Algar was smitten with blindness. Repentant, his eyesight was restored on
his making a solemn vow to build a convent for the maiden. Her bones still
rest in the Cathedral where the convent once stood and round which the
city of Oxford grew up.
