Ingelheim is the name of a place at which a church council (Concilium Igelenheinmense) was held June 27. 948, under the presidency of the Roman legate Marinus, and in the presence of the German emperor Otho I and king Louis Outremer. The principal business of the council was the punishment of Hugo, count of Paris, whom it excommunicated. It also decided that no layman should present a clerk to a church, or dispossess him, without the consent of the bishop; that the whole of Easter week be kept as a festival, and the three days following Whitsunday; that St. Mark's day be kept with fasting on account of the great litany, as was done on the rogation days preceding the feast of the Ascension: and that all differences as to tithe be settled in an ecclesiastical synod, instead of granting this power to the civil courts. — Landon, Manual of Councils, p. 267.
