of his church, such as it had been in the time of its founder, king Alfred, his son Edward, and their successors. Upon this, archbishop Thomas, restoring to Wulstan all his possessions and liberties, entreated the man of God with much earnestness, not only to possess his own church in peace, but to condescend to visit the church of York and give his people the example of so religious a character. After this the blessed bishop Wulstan lived, full of virtues, until the present year of the divine incarnation, 1095, in which, as Ave have already said, he exchanged this life for that which is eternal, on the fourteenth day before the kalends of February (Jan. 19.) At the very hour of his death he appeared in a vision to Robert, bishop of Hereford, at a town called Crichelay, and told him to make haste to Worcester and bury him. His ring also, with which he had received episcopal consecration, he allowed no one to remove from his finger, lest after death he should be thought to deceive his friends, for he had often told them that he would never part with it as long as he was alive, nor even when he should be buried. The council held by pope Urban concerning the expedition to Anlioch. The same year, i.e. A.D. 1095, our lord Urban held a council at Clermont, a city of Auvergne, and enacted the following statutes to be observed by the whole church :— That the church be catholic in one pure faith, and free from all secular service. That no bishop, abbat, or others of the clergy, should receive any ecclesiastical dignity from the hand of princes or of any of the laity. That no clerk shall hold prebends in two churches or in two cities. That no one shall be a bishop and abbat at the same time. That no ecclesiastical dignity shall be bought or sold. That no one, in whatever rank of holy orders, shall use carnal commerce. That those who shall have purchased benefices from ignorance of the canon shall be pardoned. That those who have knowingly held prebends purchased either by themselves or by their fathers for them, shall be deprived of them.
