Event Anon.VitaEdwardiRegis  I.5   [Tosti 2], with fruitful purpose, crossed the Channel with his fortunate wife [Judith 2] and his younger brother, Gyrth 1, and travelled to Rome through Saxony and the upper reaches of the Rhine. And what tongue or what words could properly tell with what devotion and generosity he worshipped on the outward and return journey each saint's shrine? At Rome he was received with fitting honour by Pope Nicholas 2, and at his command sat in the very synod of Rome immediately next to him. There had come, however, in his party Ealdred 37, bishop of Worcester, who had just then been presented with the archbishopric of York by the most holy king Edward 15, so that at Rome he could both plead the business which the king had entrusted him and also obtain the use of the pallium.
Event Anon.VitaEdwardiRegis  I.5   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.
Event Anon.VitaEdwardiRegis  I.5   Giso 1 and Walter 2, men most suitably and excellently trained in their office, came to Rome at the king [Edward 15]'s command, so that they might be ordained bishop by the lord pope [Nicholas 2], and their business was successfully completed.
Event Anon.VitaEdwardiRegis  I.5   As Tosti 2's stay in Rome was protracted owing to Bishop Ealdred 37's case, he had sent his wife [Judith 2] and her royal escort on ahead, together with most of his own men; and these had had a successful journey, in total ignorance of the robbery that had happened to the party which followed them behind.
Event Anon.VitaEdwardiRegis  I.5   When Tosti 2's party returned in confusion and distress [having been robbed], sorrowful compassion was felt in Rome; and the lord pope [Nicholas 2], afraid most of all of an attack from so famous an earl, and calling to mind especially the bishop [Ealdred 37's] free confession and his humble acceptance of the mortification which they had inflicted by degrading him, and advised by the Roman fathers that important persons should not depart from the holiness of St Peter in such distress, both pillaged and embarrassed, made all rejoice by reinstating the bishop and giving him the honour of the pallium. The earl he soothed with loving words and, especially, with great gifts taken from the bounty of St Peter; and then let him and all his men depart in peace, enriched by the apostolic absolution and benediction. And when they had journeyed home across the great distances of the intervening countries and ocean, all England rejoiced.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  i.1.4-7   Theodore 1 expelled Wilfrid 2 wrongfully, and Wilfrid 2 appealed to the pope of Rome, Agatho 2, after being buffeted by many dangers. His appeal was couched in moderate terms: he wished neither to bring charges against the pope's nominee, nor yet to allow his own innocence to be imperilled. these are the words of his memorandum to the pope: 'How has it come about that Theodore 1 should, while I yet lived, in the see which I controlled, ordain three bishops on his own authority, without the consent of any bishop, and against my humble wishes?' Wilfrid 2 was on this occasion adjudged innocent by the Roman council and sent back to his see. But he did not carry his point, thanks to the strong measures of King Ecgfrith 4, particularly as Theodore 1 either purposely obstructed him or let things take their course without interfering. This is also backed up and supported by the letter which Agatho 2 sent to the sixth synod assembled at Constantinople: 'We are hoping to join with our humble self Theodore 1 from Britain, our fellow servant and fellow bishop, archbishop of the great island of Britain, and a lover of wisdom; and this is why we have delayed this council up until now.'
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  i.3   After three years as archbishop, Tatwine 2 died in the same year as Bede 1, and was succeeded by Nothhelm 2, thought to be the priest of the church of London whom Bede 1 mentions in the prologue to his History of the English as having been of great assistance to him in putting together his account, for he brought from the archives at Rome letters vital for his researches.
Event S1519      Ketel 4 and Ęlfgifu 22, his stepdaughter, planned to go to Rome.
Event S1532      Wulf 1's will.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  i.17.5-6   On Oda 1's death Ęlfsige 30 got supporters together by greasing their palms, forged an edict from King Edgar 11, and was foisted upon Canterbury. He stamped on the grave of the blessed Oda 1, and abused his soul. Later he set off across the Alps to receive the pallium at Rome and froze to death.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  i.20.4   Ęlfheah 44, while in Rome, announced to his people, in accurate detail, the demise of Cenwulf 6.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  i.22.1-2   Robert 5, long loved and now newly honoured [by having been made archbishop] by Edward 15, played a leading part in his counsels, able to demote and promote men at his whim. Robert 5 in the end succeeded in having the leading nobles, Godwine 51 and his sons, accused of treason before the king and banished from England. For the moment his opinion held the day; but next year the cause was referred to the popular judgement, and the exiles were restored. The archbishop was clear that this reconciliation would do him no good; he therefore anticipated any judgement and went to Rome. He came back with letters asserting his innocence and asking for his return; but he met his end at Jumičges.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  ii.76   Ęthelwold 1 was succeeded by Ęlfheah 44. He took habit at Deerhurst and then moved to Bath, were he shut himself up in a private cell and thought of the divine, receiving visions. When the bishop of Winchester died, Dunstan 1 put Ęlfheah 44 in his throne. He elevated Ęthelwold 1's bones twelve years after his death. After twenty-two years as bishop, he was moved to Canterbury, against his will, they say. He had to go to Rome and received the pallium from the pope, performing miracles on the way. When the Danes arrived, he was first imprisoned for seven months, then stoned to death and buried at St Paul's in London. Nine years later, at the orders of King Cnut 3 and in his presence, is body was exhumed and found incorrupt.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  ii.91.8-9   Many of the early English saints were discovered by King Edmund 14 on his northern expedition, disinterred, and sent to Glastonbury, among them: Hild 1, abbess of the monastery once called Streneshalh and now Whitby - Bede 1 in his History rated her highly; also Ceolfrith 1, abbot of Monkwearmoth, to whom the same Bede 1 devoted a special book. He died at Langres, on extremely old age, while on his way to Rome, but later brought back. Also some of the bones of Aidan 1, first bishop of Lindisfarne. His other bones were taken by Colmįn 1 to Scottia; Bede 1 is again our authority. Praise is given at Glastonbury to the confessor Benignus 1, a local hermit, whose remarkable miracles inspired the monks nearby to venerate and translate him. In the house [of Glastonbury] are buried King Edmund 14, the renewer of the place, and his son King Edgar 11, who, remembering his father with gratitude, crowned his gifts with the grant of expensive properties.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  iii.100.5-6   Wilfrid 2 ran the course of his childhood without education. But at the age of 14, loathing his overbearing stepmother [Anonymous 122] (his own mother [Anonymous 121] having died), he left his father's [Anonymous 125] home. He was then brought to the notice of Queen Eanflęd 1. On learning about this dream to become a monk, she passed Wilfrid 2 over to one Cudda 2, who had been a senator and royal chamberlain but was now proposing to enter the religious life at Lindisfarne. He looked after Wilfrid 2 kindly for some years, and then returned him to the queen. Wilfrid 2 then was sent to Rome to improve his education.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  iii.100.6-10   Eanflęd 1 recommended Wilfrid 2 to the personal attention of Eorcenberht 1 king of Kent, her uncle [Eadbald 2's] son. So he arrived in Canterbury and increased his knowledge. A year later, he was attached by the king to the company of an energetic young man, Biscop 2, later abbot of Monkwearmouth, and with him sped on his way to Rome. Arrived at Lyon, he won over the archbishop Dalfinus 1. Having visited Rome and fulfilled his desires, he returned to Dalfinus 1 at Lyon, who adopted him as his son and made him cleric. Wilfrid 2 would have stayed with his benefactor, but Balthild 1 sent people to kill the archbishop. Wilfrid 2, ready to die with Dalfinus 1, was nevertheless saved at the last moment and sent back to England.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  iii.100.32-101.10   So long as the blessed Ęthelthryth 2 shared Ecgfrith 4's bed, she strove to keep Wilfrid 2 on good terms with her husband. But Ecgfrith 4's new wife, Eormenburg 1, stirred up hostility to the bishop on the grounds of his great wealth and influence. On hearing that, Archbishop Theodore 1 took measures against Wilfrid 2. Wilfrid 2 went to the Continent to appeal to the pope. In his absence Ęthelred 2, king of the Mercians and Wulfhere 1's brother, began a campaign against the Northumbrians to avenge the injuries done to his brother. He put Ecgfrith 4 to flight, slaying his brother Ęlfwine 4. Ęthelred 2 then banished Bishop Wynnfrith 1, successor of Chad 1 at Lichfield, because he had favoured Ecgfrith 4. Wynnfrith 1, driven by chance on to the coast of the Gaul, came upon King Theoderic 2 and Ebroin 1 duke of the Franks. They had received instructions from Britain to seize and despoil Bishop Wilfrid 2. Mistaken by the name, they killed Wynnfrith 1's company, Anonymi 337 and took away his property, though they let him get away. Meanwhile, Wilfrid 2 befriended Aldgisl 1 and converted him to Christianity; then he moved to Dagobert 3. Dagobert 3 offered Wilfrid 2 the see of Strasbourg, but the latter put off an answer till he should come back from Rome, and Dagobert 3 sent him freely on his way in the company of bishop Deodatus 1. On their way they encountered Perctarit 1, who first wanted to harm Wilfrid 2, but when he heard the true story he helped Wilfrid 2 to crown his business with success. Finally, he arrived to Rome. There had arrived earlier from Theodore 1 a monk of impeccable devoutness, one Cenwald 1, with written accusations against the bishop. Disturbed by this, Pope Agatho 2 summoned a council of fifty bishops and abbots. Andrew 1 and John 10 were present; John 12 kept the records. The council decided that Wilfrid 2's bishopric should be restored to him. Wilfrid 2 then returned to Britain, obtained audience of Ecgfrith 4 and gave him the papal decree. The king, however, showed no respect for the see of Rome, robbed the bishop of his property and handed him over to a certain reeve Osfrith 2, a man notorious for his cruelty. The court itched to do Wilfrid 2 some injury, and Eormenburg 1 went as far as to seize the bishop’s reliquary from him by force and carried it around, relics and all, on her neck or in her carriage. Osfrith 2 put the bishop into a dark prison, but through its darkness a light burst to shine on Wilfrid 2. The reeve was in fear when he heard about it, but he was even more afraid of Ecgfrith 4. Meanwhile his wife [Ębbe 1] grew very ill, first foaming at the mouth and then becoming paralyzed; Osfrith 2 threw himself at the bishop’s feet, and his wife’s health was restored; he then begged the king not to impose on him the guilt of punishing the innocent bishop. Ecgfrith 4 then passed Wilfrid 2 on to a more cruel man called Tydlin 1, who ordered the bishop to be chained – but the chains kept slipping off Wilfrid 2’s hands. The king and his wife continued to ignore these signs and treated the bishop with scorn and hostility, keeping him under arrest. But one night, on a visit from Ecgfrith 4’s aunt, Abbess Ębbe 2, Eormenburg 1 was seized with the Devil. The abbess understood what had happened and prevailed upon her nephew to restore the blessed man’s reliquary. To restore his spouse’s health, the king had to allow Wilfrid 2 to go free. The queen made a good recovery; later, after her husband’s death, she took the habit and was a religious repented of what she had done.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  iii.104-108   Under the influence of venomous counsels, King Aldfrith 1 stripped the monastery of Ripon of its possessions, and began to think of setting up a bishopric there, following the plans of the middle years of Archbishop Theodore 1, that had so notoriously caused trouble [between Wilfrid 2 and Ecgfrith 4]. Wilfrid 2 took offence, and went off to his friend Ęthelred 2 king of the Mercians. When Seaxwulf 1 bishop of Lichfield died he governed that see. But King Aldfrith 1 and Beorhtwald 6, Theodore 1’s successor, thought up many schemes against Wilfrid 2. They lured him to a council, trying to make him renounce his property and bishopric. Wilfrid 2, that time already 70, decided to appeal to Rome and soon made his entrance to the great city. There he wrote a letter to Pope John 17, outlining the essence of the conflict. The accusers sent by Beorhtwald 6 maintained that Wilfrid 2 had refused to obey the decisions of the archbishop. Wilfrid 2 responded that he would only obey the decisions which did not conflict with canon law. This reply satisfied the Romans, and matter was decided in favour of Wilfrid 2, who, being an old man, wanted to stay in Rome and die on the holy city, but Pope John 17 insisted that he was needed in England. So back he went, bringing letters from the pope to Ęthelred 2, who was now a monk. Ęthelred 2 had no difficulty in obtaining the fulfilment of their instructions from Cenred 2, son of his brother Wulfhere 1, whom he had appointed as his successor. With equal promptness Archbishop Beorhtwald 6, genuinely desiring peace, hastened to be reconciled with Wilfrid 2. Only Aldfrith 1 king of the Northumbrians persevered in obstinacy, but he had not much longer to live, before his death regretting his disregard for the pope’s letter. The letter, addressed to Ęthelred 2, cleared Wilfrid 2 before all those persons of great holiness on record who assailed Wilfrid 2 with such deadly hatred: Theodore 1, Beorhtwald 6, John 17, Bosa 1, and abbess Hild 1.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  iii.115.13-17   Making use of his money and the innocent nature of King Edward 15, Ealdred 37 took on the archbishopric of York without giving up Worcester. After arranging matters with the King, he proceeded to Rome with Giso 1 of Wells and Walter 2 of Hereford, together with Tosti 2, earl of the Northumbrians. Pope Nicholas 2 gave the earl a gracious welcome, and made him sit at his side at a synod he had convoked against simony. Ealdred 37 was found guilty of simony and stripped of his honours. On their way back the English party was attacked by robbers, lost all their property and fled to Rome. Tosti 2 urged Nicholas 2 either to use his authority and return their property, or to restore pallium to Ealdred 37. The pope did the latter but he laid down that Worcester should have its own bishop.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  iii.117.1   Hexham was a contributor to the royal fisc when Wilfrid 2 took it from Queen Ęthelthryth 2 in exchange for other estates. Here he constructed buildings of remarkable polish, with menacing high walls and ringed around by various winding ways, [joined] by spiral staircases. Much was the product of his own judgement, but he also learned from stonemasons who had been lured from Rome by hope of generous reward.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  iv.156.3-4   At the age of seven Cynehelm 1 had been left by his father Cenwulf 3 to be brought up by his sister Cwenthryth 1. In her greed, she entertained the illusory hope of the throne, and assigned the job of eliminating her little brother to the retainer who looked after him [Anonymous 10084]. He took the innocent child off on the pretence of a hunt, killed him, and hid him in some bushes. A crime so well concealed in England became, by the will of God, public knowledge in Rome through a piece of parchment with the story written out in English, carried by a dove and laid on the altar of St Peter's. After it was interpreted by an Englishman [Anonymous 10085], a letter was sent telling English kings of an English martyr. So in the presence of a great company the child's body was raised up and brought to Winchcombe, accompanied by sonorous chanting of the clerics. The murderess that time was chanting the psalm 'God my praise', going through it backwards to undermine the pleasure of the singers. But then by God's power the witch's eyes were torn out from her hollow sockets.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  iv.160.1-4   Bede 1 is for some reasons silent on Ecgwine 1, particularly as he went to Rome with Cenred 2 king of the Mercians and Offa 5 king of the East Angles, a visit that our historian did speak of. If we are to believe the old story, Ecgwine 1 once, knowing himself guilty of sins in his youth, shackled his feet and threw the keys into the river, proclaiming to all and sundry that he would only feel free of his sins when the shackles were unlocked, either by a miracle or with the actual keys. He went to Rome in this state, and came back unscathed. But while he was crossing the strait between Gaul and England, a monster of a fish leapt into the ship carrying the bishop and was trapped there thanks to the valiant efforts of the sailors. They gutted it, and found in its liver a key, which when applied to the lock of the fetters freed the saint, greatly relieving his conscience.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  iv.180.2   Cyneswith 1 converted her betrothed, Offa 3, to celibacy and monastic life. On her advice he went off, accompanied by Cenred 2 king of the Mercians and Ecgwine 1 bishop of Hwicce, to Rome. There he was tonsured for a monk, and said goodbye to the world for his lifetime.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  v.188.3   Ine 1 paid a visit to Rome.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  v.217-222   On consultations with Ine 1 and Ęthelred 2, Aldhelm 3 resolved to go to Rome to win privileges from the pope Sergius 1 for his monasteries, which he founded thanks to the generosity of Leuthhere 2. During his stay in Rome, Aldhelm 3 won the pontiff's heart by his devotion and by two miracles: a chasuble he dropped having celebrated a mass hung on a sunbeam; he also cleared the pope from accusations of fathering a nun's son by making the infant proclaim miraculously that Sergius 1 was innocent. The pope granted the privileges Aldhelm 3 was asking for, writing a letter. Aldhelm 3 returned safely to England with rich gifts, particularly a marble altar. The camel carrying it collapsed under its weight, and the altar broke in two; but Aldhelm 3's prayers restored both the piece to its former entity and the animal to its strength. In England Aldhelm 3 was welcomed back by Ine 1 and Ęthelred 2; the latter was given many gifts from the pope, but the altar Aldhelm 3 gave to the former. Ine 1 placed it in his town called Bruton.
Event WilliamofMalmesbury.GestaPontificumAnglorum  v.250.5-6   After the death of Edward 2 Alfred 33 conspired to blind Ęthelstan 18 at Winchester. When his machinations were exposed, he was sent of to the church of Rome to answer for himself on oath before Pope John 32. He did so at the altar of St Peter, but after swearing it he collapsed and was carried by his men to the School of the English, where he died two nights later. Ęthelstan 18 gave Alfred 33 Christian burial, little though he deserved it, and took over his property.
Event S1237      Burgheard 6 travelled to Rome. On his way back to England he seems to have died at or near Rheims.
Event Anon.LiberEliensis  LE II.60   Leofwine 77 travelled to Rome to make amends for having killed his mother. The Pope ordered that he should give his first-born son to a poor little church as a monk and richly endow it.
Event NorthernAnnals.SecondSet  80   On 888 prince Beocca 2 carried to Rome the alms of King Alfred 8. On that journey died Ęthelswith 1, the sister of the same king, and was buried in Pavia.
