Arnulf (or Arnoul)

Arnulf (or Arnoul)

a learned prelate of.the 10th century, was elected bishop OF ORLEANS in 986. On Jan. 1, 988, he crowned Robert, son of Hugh Capet; he rebuilt the Cathedral of Orleans; and took charge of the council in June, 991, in the church of the Abbey of St. Basil, in order to depose Arnoul, archbishop of Rheims. Some years later he assisted at another council, held at the Abbey of St. Denis, near Paris. There it was proposed to take away the tithes from the monks and laymen and give them to the bishops. Abbo of Fleury, sustained by the people, opposed this proposition violently. The writings of Arnulf are, for the most part, unpublished. One is a Discourse delivered before the Council of St. Basil :-another, De Cartilagine, in the Library of the Vatican. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.,v.
