136 ROGEIÎ OP WENDOVER. [A.D .726. and horns whatever stood in their way. He was succeeded by Wilfrid the second, his presbyter, who survived the time of Bede. How Ine, king of She West-Saxons, slew Eadbert. In the year of grace 722, Ine, king of the West-Saxons, marched a large army into Sussex, and slew in battle Eadbert, whom he had before driven from the castle of Tantona, inasmuch as Ine had built that castle. The same year died Withred, king of Kent, leaving his three sons heirs to his kingdom : Ethelbert, the eldest, attained it, and reigned seventeen years. In these days Tobias, bishop of Rochester, died, and was succeeded by Eadwolf. Degradation of the bishop of Rheims. In the year of grace 723, Ricobert, bishop of Rheims, was deposed from the bishopric by Charles, king of the Franks, for refusing to open to him the gates of that city, when he was engaged in a hostile expedition against Reginfred. Eutherius also, bishop of Aries, was ejected from his bishopric for the like reason. Foolish counsel of a Jewish sorcerer. In the year of grace 724, a certain Jewish sorcerer persuaded a certain nobleman to issue an edict for putting down the images of God and the saints throughout his dominions, promising him that in that case he should reign forty years. Induced by the hope of a long reign, the nobleman issued the edict, but immediately thereupon expired. At what time Bede began his history of the English. In the year of grace 725, the venerable presbyter, Bede, began his history of the English, and having brought his commendable undertaking to a happy conclusion, he presented it to king Ceolwulf. Images are forbidden to be venerated. In the year of grace 726, the emperor Leo ordered the images of Christ and his saints to be broken in pieces : pope Gregory sought earnestly to convince him by his letters, but in vain.
