Eanbald (floruit 798)
|Archbishop of York|
Copper styca of Eanbald II
|Term ended||c. 808|
|Consecration||14 August 796|
Eanbald was consecrated the successor of his namesake to the archbishopric of York on 14 August 796.
Alcuin wrote frequently to Eanbald, laying down many rules for the direction of his province. He sent many gifts to York, including a shipload of metal (stagnum) for the roof of the bell tower at York Minster.
In 798 Eanbald assembled his clergy in synod at Finchale, near Durham. There, he enacted a number of regulations relating to the ecclesiastical courts and the observance of Easter. He may have been the first to introduce the Roman Ritual in the church of York.
- Usually known as Eanbald II to distinguish him from an earlier archbishop also named Eanbald.
