Appointment - ecclesiastical (1)
 Wilfrid 2.episcopal consecration: When Wilfrid 2 discovered that Chad 1 had been appointed to his see, her retired to Ripon for three years, acting as a priest. He was often called in by Wulfhere 1 king of the Mercians, who gave him a site called Lichfield on which to build a cathedral or a monastery. He was honoured with equal generosity by Ecgberht 3 king of Kent; and when Ecgberht 3 summoned him there Wilfrid 2 advanced many of his subjects up the grades of church preferment. One was Putta 1, whom he made a priest (later Theodore 1 promoted him to be bishop of Rochester). When Theodore 1 arrived to England, he saw that the canons had been flouted, and he degraded Chad 1, whose long-suffering touched Wilfrid 2's heard; by his help, Chad 1 was advanced for a second time though all the degrees and installed as bishop of Lichfield. At York Wilfrid 2 repaired and rebuilt a church built long ago by King Edwin 2; he also had a church built in Ripon. To its consecration were invited the brother kings Ecgfrith 4 and Ælfwine 4. For their father Oswiu 1 had died meanwhile, and it was they who endowed the place with vast estates.: WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  iii.100.19-23

He summoned the reluctant Edwin 2 to the faith by confronting him with a miracle which God had in his mercy once sent to the king, and which the spirit of prophecy now put into Paulinus 1's mind. He received the pallium from Pope Honorius 2, and consecrated Honorius 1 archbishop of Canterbury to follow Justus 1. After winning much booty from the Devil among the northern people, he was forcibly turned out of his see by enemy action, and returned to Kent. It was then that he took over the rule of the church of Rochester, for this holy priest was favoured and solicited by Archbishop Honorius 1 and King Eadbald 2. He took on what in their charity his brethren suggested, and, after contenting himself of a while with this inferior post, went the way of all flesh at the due time, nineteen years, two months and twenty-one days after he was ordained to York.: WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  i.72.3-4
