Primary Source Info
Original Text synodum
Date from Source after Cenred 2 had come back from Rome.


*The information on this synod is very suspicious. There are no earlier sources referring to the same event and according to the Liber Pontificalis Cenred 2 died in Rome, so that he could not have summoned a synod after his journey there. See @Lapidge 1979a, 'Byrhtferth and the Vita S. Ecgwini', in Medieval Studies, 41 (1979), pp. 331-53.
