Nid, Council of
Nid, Council of (Concilium Niddanum), was an ecclesiastical assemblage convened A.D. 705 near the River Nid, in Northumbria, by Bertwald of Canterbury, assisted by Bosa, bishop of York, John of Hagustald, and Eadfrid of Lindisfarn. Several abbots, and the abbess St. Elfrida (daughter of Oswy, king of Northumberland), were present, together with Wilfred, whom Bosa succeeded in the bishopric of York. Wilfrid was reconciled with the other bishops of the province, but it does not appear that he was restored to his bishopric, which Boss retained until his death, and. after him John of Hagustald (or Hexham) was translated thither.
