Aluberht (2)

Aluberht (2)

was consecrated bishop of the East Saxons, or of the Old Saxons, in 767. Simeon: of Durham calls him Aluberht, and makes him bishop of the Old Saxons of Germany. If this be true, he was the last bishop consecrated in England for Germany, and identical with the missionary Alubert (q.v.). In the M.S. (more authoritative) used by Hoveden, he is called Alberht and made bishop of Essex; and thus corresponds with Ealdberht, the ninth bishop of London in the ancient lists, and with an Aldberht who signs various charters between 775 and 785. As, however, there were contemporary bishops, Aldberht at Hereford and Eadberht at Leicester, he cannot be identified with certainty, but is, most probably the bishop Eadberchus who attests the proceedings of the legatine council of 787.
