Urgel, Council of
Urgel, Council of Seo de Urgel is a city of Spain on a plain among the Pyrenees, containing an ancient cathedral and other ecclesiastical buildings. A council was held here in 799 by Leidrade, archbishop of Lyons, whom Charlemagne had sent, together with Nefridius of Narbonne, the abbot Benedict, and several other bishops and abbots, to Felix, bishop of Urgel. They succeeded in persuading him to present himself to the king, promising him full liberty to produce in his presence those passages from the fathers which he believed to favor his notions. Urghier, in Tibetan mythology, is one of the supreme deities of the Lamaites, generated from a flower.
