Arnoul, Bishop of Lisieux
Arnoul, Bishop Of Lisieux, born at the beginning of the twelfth century, died August 3d, 1183.- He made fruitless efforts to reconcile King Henry II of England with Archbishop Thomas of Canterbury. In his old age he resigned his bishopric, and retired to the abbey of St. Victor of Paris, where he died. We have from him a volume of epistles, of discourses, and epigrams (Epistolc, Conciones, et Epigrammata, published by Turnebe, Paris, 1585, 8vo), which contains interesting details on the history of ecclesiastical discipline during his time. He is also the author of some poems, and of an essay on the schism which followed the death of Honorius II (published in the Bibliotheca Potrum, and the Spicilegium d'Archry).-Hoefer, Biographie Generale, iii, 333.
