Scholarly Info
Description Ealdred 37, bishop of Worcester, was presented with the archbishopric of York by Edward 15 and went to Rome to obtain the use of the pallium from Nicholas 2. Wherefore he was examined on how he had come to sacred orders; and by his own free admission Ealdred 37 was discovered to have transferred from the bishopric of his first ordination to another, contrary to canon law. And so when the apostolic and pontifical decretals had been considered, and the whole synod gave its judgement, he failed in his request; and not only did he not obtain the use of pallium, but also he was even deposed from his episcopal rank; and he had to go away in this confusion.
