A.D. 1113.] DEATH OF TANCKED. 465 The virgin constructed a monastery there, and herself presided as abbess over the company of pious virgins there assembled. This monastery in the time of king Ethelred was consumed by fire, together with the Danes who fled thither for refuge, when all the men of that nation were doomed to death : not long after it was rebuilt by the same king, and endowed with ample possessions. This year died Robert count of Flanders, who had so distinguished himself in the pilgrimage to Jerusalem, that his name will be for ever remembered. His son Baldwin became count after him. The same year Sidon, a city on the sea-coast, was besieged and taken by the illustrious king Baldwin. Of the dissension between the pope and emperor. A.D. 1112. There arose a dispute at Rome between pope Paschal and the emperor Henry, from the following cause : — The emperor wished to use the privilege which his ancestors had enjoyed for three hundred and sixty years under the Roman pontiffs, of bestowing bishoprics and abbacies by means of the ring and pastoral staff; but the Roman pontiffs would not allow them to be given by the ring and staff, nor that any ecclesiastic should receive institution from the laity. Peace was, however, made between the emperor and the pope, on condition that bishops and abbats should for the future receive institution from the emperor and his successors by the staff and ring, but should previously have made profession of obedience to the bishop whom it concerned, and received from him the usual consecration. This settlement was made in public before the altar of the apostles Peter and Paul ; and the pope then allowed the emperor to partake of Christ's holy body. The same year died the illustrious Tancred, who performed such splendid deeds in Palestine ; he was prince of Antiocb and count of Edessa. To him succeeded Roger Fitz-Richard, a noble man, on the condition that, when Boamund the younger should claim possession of Antioch, he should immediately give it up to him. Of the dissension between the archbishops of Canterbury and York. A.D . 1113. King Henry gave the see of Canterbury to Ralph bishop of London, and invested him therewith by VOI. I. u π
