A.D. 1103. DISCOBD BETWEEN HEN Β Γ AND AN3EEÌI. 195 bishop of Worcester, Robert, bishop of Chester, John, bishop of Bath, Herbert, bishop of Norwich, Ralph, bishop of Chichester, Gundulph, bishop of Rochester, and the two who had lately received investiture, Roger and the second Roger. Osborn,35 bishop of Exeter, being kept away by his infirmities, was unable to take part in the synod. At this synod, many abbats of French extraction, and some English, were deposed and deprived of their dignities, which they had unrighteously acquired, or had led a disgraceful life while enjoying them ; namely, Guido, abbat of Pershore, Aid win, abbat of Ramsey, the abbat of Middleton, Bodric, abbat of Burgh, Bichard, abbat of Ely, and Robert, abbat of Saint Edmund's.

For this reason, the king ordered Gerard, the archbishop of York, to con-secrate the bishops on whom the king himself had conferred investiture;37 namely, William Giffard, and Roger, who had been, his chaplain,38 and to whom he had lately given the bishopric of Salisbury. Accordingly, Gerard obeyed the king's command ; but, in the cause of justice, William Giffard dis-regarded it, and rejected the benediction of archbishop Gerard. In consequence of this, by the king's sentence, he was stripped of everything, and banished from the kingdom ; the others, however, remained unconsecrated. Shortly before this, Reinelm had returned to the king the bishopric of Hereford, because he was sensible that he had offended God, in having received the investiture of a church from the hand of any layman. After this, at Easter, the king 33 V. r. Osbert. 56 In Dorsetshire. 3" By the ring and crozier. 38 He has previously said that he was the king's chancellor. ο 2
