York, placing his hand in the hand of Anselm, as he himself desired, promised, upon his faith, that he would pay the same obedience and be in the same subjection to him and his successors in the archbishopric, as he had promised to him when about to be consecrated by him to the see of Hereford. Walter Giffard, bishop elect of Winchester, Eoger of Salisbury, Beinelm of Hereford, William of Exeter, and Urban of Glamorgan, in Wales, came to Canterbury at the same time, and were consecrated together by Anselm, on the third day before the ides of August, being the Lord's day, the following suffragans of his province assisting him in his duties : Gerard, archbishop of York, Robert, bishop of Lincoln, John, bishop of Bath, Herbert, bishop of Norwich, Bobert, bishop of Chester, Ralph, bishop of Chichester, and Ranulph, bishop ot Durham. There was no one then Uving, who could remember in past times so many pastors being elected and consecrated at one time in England, except in the days of Edward the Elder, when archbishop Plegmund consecrated seven bishops to seven churches in one day. In the same year, Maurice, bishop of London, Richard, abbat of Ely, Bobort, abbat of Saint Edmund's, Milo Crispin, Robert Fitz-Haimon, Roger Bigot, and Richard do Rivers departed this life. In the year 1108, Gundulph, bishop of Rochester, died on the nones of March. Henry, king of the EngUsh, for the purpose of protection, enacted a law that, R any one should be detected in the act of theft or larceny, he should be hanged. He also enacted that base and spurious coin should be guarded against with such strictness, that whosoever should be detected coining spurious money, should lose his eyes and the lower part of his body without any ransom ; and, inasmuch as, very frequently, while pennies were being coined,46 they were bent, or broken, and then rejected, he ordered that no penny or oboi,47 whieh he also ordered to be made of a round form, or even farthing, if it was a good one, should be rejected. From this provision much good resulted to the whole king- 43 " Eligebantur" is the word used here, probably by mistake for " elidebantur," which may allude to the process of coining by hammering out. 47 Probably a small silver coin of three carats in weight. 200 ANNALS OF ROGER DE HOVEDEN.
