Edmund (or Eadmund) was Bishop of Durham from 1021 to 1041.[1]

Symeon of Durham relates the story that Edmund was a monk of Durham, and that he was chosen because a strange voice that came from the tomb of Saint Cuthbert insisted that Edmund be selected as the next bishop.[2] His election was confirmed by King Cnut of England.[3] Edmund died while visiting the English royal court at Gloucester in 1041.[2]
