Riculphus (Fr Riculfe)
Riculphus (Fr. Riculfe), bishop of Soissons, died about 902. He entered upon this see between 883 and 892, and assisted in the council of Verberie in 892 and of Rheims in 893. In 900, in the latter city, he consecrated archbishop Hervd, and excommunicated the murderers of archbishop Foulques. He made himself celebrated by the constitution which he established in his church in 889. This had for its object the correction of the ignorance of the clergy, and has been reprinted several times since 1615. It may be found in the supplement to the Conciles des Gaules of Pierre de la Lande, and in vol. 9 of the Conciles of Labbe. See Gallia Christiana; Hist. Litter. de la France; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
