Angilram bishop of Metz from 768 to 791, also abbot of the monastery Senones, and arch-chaplain of Charlemagne. After 789 he bore the title archbishop as a personal distinction. His name is celebrated in the history of the Canon Law by a collection of laws respecting legal proceedings against bishops, called Capitula Angilrami. According to some Codd. they were presented by Angilram to Pope Adrian, but, according to others, presented by Adrian to Angilram. They are generally regarded as spurious (see Rettberg, Kirchengeschichte Deutschlands, 1, 501; and Herzog, s.v. Angilram), and as extracts from the Pseudo-Decretals; but their authenticity has been defended by Wasserschleben, Beitrage zur Geschichte derfalschen Decretalen. — Hase, Church History, p. 185.
