From catholic.org

Saint Bosa was a Benedictine monk at Whitby, England in a monastery ruled by St. Hilda. In 678, he was consecrated a bishop by St. Theodore.

He was involved in St. Wilfrid’s refusal to accept the division of the see of York. Saint Bosa became the bishop in 691, when Wilfrid was exiled by King Aldfrid.

St. Bede called Bosa a man of unusual merit and sanctity, “a man beloved of God.”
