As for the church of Saint David's, from the same cause, either through slothfulness or poverty, its bishops had always hitherto gone without the pall. Still, however, all the bishops of the church of Saint David's, that is to say, nineteen bishops, from the departure of Saint Samson until the time of Henry, the first king of England, enjoyed the whole of the archiépiscopal dignity, except the pall, and had seven suffragans, namely, Llandaff, Saint Paternus in Kerdikan,44 (which see, because the people thereof slew their pastor, had been long since abolished, and united with the diocese of Saint David's), Bangor and Saint Asaph ; while in "Wales, beyond the Severn, which had been lately taken possession of by the English, there were the bishoprics of Chester, Hereford, and Worcester. However, the before-named king Henry, having rendered Wales subject to his rule, and, consequently, wishing to render the said church of Saint David's, and the other churches in Wales, suffragans of the church of Saint David's, subject to the church of his own kingdom, namely, to the church of Canterbury, had Bernard, the clerk of his chamber, appointed in place of bishop Wilfrid, in the church of Saint David's, and then, by violent measures, had him consecrated at Canterbury ; he being the first bishop of the church of Saint David's who was consecrated by the archbishop pf Canterbury. After him, David and Peter were in like manner compelled by the kings of England to receive consecration from the archbishops of Canterbury, oaths having been previously extorted from them, in contravention of the canons, not at any time to raise any dispute as to their metropolitan right against the church of Canterbury. Bernard, however, on the decease of king Henry the Pirst, did move the question, as to the metropolitan rights of his church, against Theobald, archbishop of Canterbury ; on which occasion, pope Eugenius wrote to Theobald, archbishop of Canterbury, to the following effect :— The Letter of pope JEkgenius, on'the metropolitan dignity of the church of Saint David's.
