and the number of the Bishop shall be 3[edit]

According to one of the sources of the original author, this bloke was probably the first non-fictional Bishop of Winchester. Should this be mentioned? --fuddlemark (fuddle me!) 04:15, 27 September 2005 (UTC)

I think you must have misunderstood something somewhere.

He was 25th (give or take half a dozen) Bishop of Winchester.

He was, by tradition, 7th Abbot of Abingdon, but the earlier six are "fictional" because "There is good reason to think that in most cases their names were simply plucked from early charters available in the abbey's archive, the majority of which would seem to have had no connection with an early minister at Abingdon; there is no very convincing evidence that the historians had access to independent, reliable sources of information. The 'history' of the pre-Æthelwoldian minister seems to a very large extent to represent a fictional reconstruction".

Need a picture...?[edit]

Edgar in Regularis Concordia.jpg

I see the WikiProject banner has been updated to ask for a specific image. How about this one, already available? As I recall, Æthelwold is the person on the left (with King Edgar in the middle, and Dunstan on the right), but I can probably check whether I'm making that up wrong about that fairly easily.
