Χ.Ό. 674.] COUNCIL OF HERTFORD. 101 Theodore, archbishop of Kent, assembles a council. In the year of grace 673, Lothaire being king of Kent, and Eascwin king of Wesscx, Theodore, archbishop of Kent, assembled a council at Hertford, at which all the bishops, and kings, and nobles of England were present.
