A.D. 1070. LANFEANC MADE ABCHBISnOP. 149 therefore given that the claim shonld remain in its present state until an archbishop was appointed, who might defend his church, and there would be a person to make answer to his charge ; so that, after the charges and answers had been considered, judgment might be given with more fairness and certainty. Accordingly, on the present occasion, the claim stood over for a time. On the day of Pentecost, in this year, the king, being then at Windsor, gave the archbishopric of the church of York to Thomas, a venerable canon of Bayeux, and the bishopric of Winchester to ValceUne, his own chaplain : and, by his command, on the foBowing day, Armenfred, the above-named bishop of Sion, held a synod, John and Peter, the cardinals before-mentioned, having returned to Rome. At this synod Agelric, bishop of the South Saxons,45 was degraded in an uneanonical manner ; and shortly after, for no fault on his part, the king placed him in confinement at Mearlesberge.44 A considerable number of abbats were also deposed ; after whose deposition, the king gave to his chaplains Arfract, the bishopric of East AngUa,45 and to Stigand, that of the South Saxons ; to some of the Norman monks he also gave abbeys ; and, as the archbishop of Canterbury had been deposed, and the archbishop of York had recently died, by the king's command ValceBne was ordained on the eighth day after Pentecost by the same Armenfred, bishop of Sion, the legate of the Apostolic See. On the approach of the feast of Saint John the Baptist, earl Osborn departed for Denmark with the fleet that had lain in the river Humber during the winter, but his brother, Sweyn, outlawed him on account of the money, which, contrary to the wishes of the Danes, he had received from king William. At this period the most valiant man, Edric, surnamed the Woodsman,16 was reconciled to king WiUiam. After this, the king summoned from Normandy Lanfranc, the abbat of Caen, a Lombard by birth, a man of the greatest learning in every respect, well skUled in all the Bberal arts and in the knowledge of both divine and secular Bterature, and most prudent in counsel and in the management of temporal matters, and, on the day of the Assumption of Saint 43 Bishop of Selsey. 43 Of Helmham. 41 Marlborough. 46 Silvalicus.
