A.D. 1195. HUGH, BISHOP OF DURHAM, DIES. great multitudes ; among whom were some of the household of archbishop Geoffrey, namely, Master Otui and William de Bonville, and two others, who forbade the said dean, on behalf of our lord the pope and the archbishop of York, to approach the mother church as dean thereof, until the dispute which existed between the archbishop and himself, as to the said deanery, should have been duly disposed of by the Roman Pontiff, and appealed thereon to our lord the pope. And because the said dean would not desist from his purpose, they laid violent hands on him ; but being immediately excommunicated themselves, on account of this violence, they allowed him to go ; on which he proceeded on his way and came to the mother church, and the canons of the church received him in solemn procession, this taking place on the Lord's day next before the beginning of Lent : and, at the beginning of Lent, Hugh, bishop of Durham, came to York, and confirmed the sentence of excommunication pronounced upon those who had laid violent hands upon the dean. While the said bishop of Durham was on his road thence to London, and had arrived at Doncaster, he fell ill, and being unable to proceed any further, was carried by ship to his vili of Hoveden. In the same month- of February, in the country of the king of Scotland, died Gregory, bishop of Ross, who was succeeded by Reginald, eurnamed " the Lean," a monk of Melrose. It is stated, that in the cathedral church of the bishopric of Ross, which is called Rosmarein, Saint Boniface, the pope who was the fourth from Saint Gregory, was buried. About this Boniface we read in the Ecclesiastical histories, that he prevaBed upon Phocas Cœsar, the emperor of the Romans, to present the Temple at Rome, which was previously caBed the Pantheon, to the church of God; and, after banishing therefrom the abominations of DevBs, he dedicated it in honor of the blessed Mary, the Mother of God and ever a virgin, and of aB the Saints, appointing that festival to be celebrated every year, at the beginning of the calends of November. In the same year, in the month of March, on the third day of that month, being the sixth day of the week, Hugh, bishop of Durham, departed this life, at his viB of Hoveden, and was buried at Durham, in the chapter house of the monks ; but before his body had entered Durham, Walter de FerBngton deBvered to Hugh Bardolph the castle of Durham, and hung up the keys of the castle over the shrine of Saint Cuthbert.
