Brihthelm (Bishop of Selsey)
|Bishop of Selsey|
|Appointed||between 953 and 956|
|Term ended||between 956 and 963|
|Died||between 956 and 963|
Brihthelm or Beorhthelm was a Bishop of Selsey.
According to a South Saxon charter, supposedly from 956, Brihthelm received a grant of land from a King Eadwig; however, the charter (S.616) is likely to have been a later forgery, although probably based on a genuine contemporary document.
A charter (S.1291) issued by Brihthelm in 957, pertaining to the restoration of lands seized around Selsey by a certain Ælfsige, is also thought to be suspicious, but again it is probable that a genuine contemporary document lies behind it.
