 People say money cannot buy good works, but Queen Edith bought the services of enough worshippers to pray for her soul and enough gold to cover her relics and the jewelled casket in which they lie. They say she is still bitter that the inner casket is silver, rather than gold, and that she had to use rubies rather than emerald to replace her eyes. They say if you bring her sufficient gold and emeralds she will bestow favours upon you commensurate to the wealth you provided her. They say she walks Durham Cathedral at night to weigh up the day's offerings, and the brass scales on her shrine are there for that purpose. They say the eyes of Saint Edith can tell you where a dragon's hoard is located. People say money cannot buy good works, but Queen Edith bought the services of enough worshippers to pray for her soul and enough gold to cover her relics and the jewelled casket in which they lie.
