Archbishop of Canterbury Elect

Wighard was a native Saxon, elected as Archbishop of Canterbury in AD 666, almost two years after the death of his predecessor, St. Deusdedit. He travelled to Rome for his consecration by the Pope, but became cut off from Britain by the plague which was racing across Europe. He never did receive the pallium and, four years later, St. Theodore of Canterbury was appointed in his place. logo
