Theulf (died 20 October 1123) was a medieval Bishop of Worcester.

Life[edit]

Theulf was a canon of Bayeux Cathedral and a king's chaplain[1] before he was nominated to the see of Worcester on 28 December 1113. He was consecrated on 27 June 1115. He died on 20 October 1123.[2] The medieval chronicler William of Malmesbury claimed that Theulf confessed on his deathbed that he had purchased his bishopric.[3]
