Hugo of Lincoln

Hugo of Lincoln was born in 1140 at Gratianopolis, Burgundy, and was first a regular canon, and later a Carthusian monk. When Henry II founded the Carthusian monastery at Witham, in Somersetshire, he invited Hugo to accept the priorship of this new foundation. After many entreaties by Reginal, bishop of Bath, Hugo consented. He was also made bishop of Lincoln by Henry II. He died in Nov. 1200, and was canonized at Rome in 1221. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biogr.
