Persons associated with this Event:
(Archbishop of Canterbury, 668-690) : Theodore 1 held a synod with other bishops (Anonymi 353) at which three people (Anonymi 331) laid claim to Wilfrid 2's see. While Wilfrid 2 was still alive, against his opposition, and without the consent of any bishop, Theodore 1 consecrated on his own the three as bishops.
(Bishop of York and Saint, d.709) : Three persons (Anonymi 331) attempted to seize and place themselves in the see that Wilfrid 2 had been ruling for ten years. They were consecrated by Theodore 1 on his own, while Wilfrid 2 was still alive, without episcopal consent and in spite of Wilfrid 2's opposition. Wilfrid 2 claimed that he did not inflame sedition or behave contentiously, but he immediately appealed to the Apostolic See and departed, only protesting at the bishops to his fellow-servants and fellow-bishops of these same provinces.
(Those directed to bring letters from Britain to Agatho 2 (chap. 29)) : These bishops attended a synod of Theodore 1's at which three men (Anonymi 331) laid claim to Wilfrid 2's see.
(Three bishops consecrated by Theodore 1 to the see of Wilfrid 2) : At a synod of Theodore 1 and other bishops, three men (Anonymi 331) claimed Wilfrid 2's see, which he had held for ten years and more. While Wilfrid 2 was still alive, Theodore 1 consecrated them as bishops on his own authority, without the consent of any bishop and against Wilfrid 2's opposition.
(Fellow-servants and fellow-priests of Wilfrid 2 (chap. 30)) : After three men (Anonymi 331) had been appointed bishops in Wilfrid 2's see and before he left to appeal to the pope, Wilfrid 2 protested to his fellow-servants and fellow-bishops (Anonymi 354).
(I, pope, 678-681) : Agatho 2 received a petition from Wilfrid 2 describing this event.
