According to some, he was a Benedictine of the Abbey of Glastonbury, and dean of that cathedral. He went to Rome in 1022 to' receive the pall from the pope, and upon his return is said to have brought from Pavia an arm of St. Augustine, bishop of Hippo, for which he paid one hundred "talents of silver. This he presented to Leofric, earl of Coventry, together with a work which he composed on the subject. He died Oct. 29, 1038. He left a volume of Letters, and a work In Praise of the Blessed Virgin, addressed to Fulbertus, bishop of Chartres. See Godwin De Pressum. An Comment.; Pitseus, De Illust. Angl. Script.
