Athelm archbishop of Canterbury, was first heard of as a monk of Glastonbury, and then as bishop of Wells. He was translated to Canterbury in 914, and occupied the metropolitan see for nine years. During this period nothing, memorable occurred in the Church. Athelm appears to have had the happiness of reaping the fruits which resulted from the seed wisely sown by his immediate predecessors, under the direction of Alfred. He died Jan. 8, 923. .See Hook, Lives of the Archbishops of Canterbury, i, 334 sq.
