127 – The Synod of Whitby


The major players for today will be Hild (who was the daughter of King Edwin’s nephew, Hereric), King Oswiu of Bernicia, Bishop Colman of Lindisfarne, Wilfred the abbot of Ripon, and Bishop Cedd. And they will be, ostensibly, arguing over Easter.

See? Once again, we’ve got Easter causing trouble in Britain. Cadburys chocolate can’t come soon enough. This is getting out of hand.

    I am glad I am not the only one who now stands corrected on the pronunciation of synod. Love your podcasts.

      The shows have been re-ordered and some of them have been regrouped into combination episodes so that the show is easier to follow. I’ll release a PSA about it today on the feed. :)
