Scholarly Info
Description The clergy and monks of Canterbury sent to Godwine 51 and reminded him of his kin, and entreated him for the love of his relative [Æthelric 65] to approach the king [Edward 15] and to approve this man as their pontiff, since he was a nursling of that church and elected according to canon law. But since... in those days the good king lent his ear more to the rival party, the earl [Godwine 51] suffered a defeat in pressing his request.
