SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Æthelwold of Winchester

Æthelwold of Winchester was Bishop of Winchester from 963 to 984 and one of the leaders of the tenth-century monastic reform movement in Anglo-Saxon England. Monastic life had declined to a low ebb in England in the ninth century because of the ravages caused by Viking attacks, because of a preference for secular clergy, who were cheaper and were thought to serve the spiritual needs of the laity better. Kings from Alfred the Great onwards took an interest in the Benedictine rule, but it was only in the middle of the tenth century that kings became ready to commit substantial funds to its support. Æthelwold became the leading propagandist for the monastic reform movement, although he made enemies by his ruthless methods, he was more extreme in his opposition to secular clergy than his fellow reformers, Saint Dunstan and Oswald of Worcester. He is recognised as a key figure in the reform movement, who made a major contribution to the revival of learning and the arts, he was an important political figure, backing Æthelred the Unready against Edward the Martyr, playing a major advisory role during Æthelred's minority.

Æthelwold was born to noble parents in Winchester. From the late 920s he served in a secular capacity at the court of King Athelstan, according to Æthelwold's biographer, Wulfstan, "he spent a long time in the royal burh there as the king's inseparable companion, learning much from the king's witan, useful and profitable to him"; the king arranged for him to be ordained a priest by Ælfheah the Bald, Bishop of Winchester, on the same day as Saint Dunstan. After a period in the late 930s studying under Ælfheah at Winchester, Æthelwold moved to Glastonbury Abbey, where Dunstan had been made abbot. Here Æthelwold studied grammar and patristics, subsequently being made dean. During the reign of King Eadred, Æthelwold wished to travel to Europe to learn more about the monastic life, but Eadred refused permission, instead appointed him abbot of the former monastic site of Abingdon, served by secular priests; the years he spent in Abingdon were productive, he undertook the building of a church, the rebuilding of the cloister and the establishment at Abingdon of the Benedictine Rule.

When Eadred died, he was succeeded by his nephew, who drove Eadred's chief advisor, into exile. However, Æthelwold attended Eadwig's court in at least some of the years of his reign, 955–59; the future King Edgar had been taught from boyhood by Æthelwold, who evidently inspired his pupil to take an interest in the rule of Saint Benedict. When Eadwig died, Æthelwold backed Edgar's succession, he seems to have been in the personal service of King Edgar in 960–963, as he wrote many of the charters of this period. On 29 November 963, Æthelwold was consecrated Bishop of Winchester, the following year, with the connivance of King Edgar and the support of an armed force led by a royal official, he had the clerics of the Winchester Old and New Minsters expelled and replaced by monks from Abingdon; the king had sought the permission of the pope for the expulsion the previous autumn. Between 964 and 971, Æthelwold refounded monasteries at Chertsey, Milton Abbas, Peterborough and Thorney, the Nunnaminster nunnery in Winchester.

He was zealous in recovering land which he believed had once belonged to religious communities and subsequently been alienated, if necessary charters were forged to prove claims to title.Æthelwold was one of the principal advocates for the Benedictine reform movement during Edgar's reign, the author of all the major works of propaganda produced in England. He had the strong support of Edgar and his wife, Ælfthryth, his works emphasise the role of Edgar, who he saw as Christ's representative, in restoring the monasteries, he envisaged a major role for Edgar in supervising monasteries, for Queen Ælthryth supervising Benedictine nunneries. However, he was more extreme in his espousal of monasticism than Dunstan and Oswald, the other great leaders of monasticism in the reign of King Edgar, they followed continental practice in maintaining both monks and secular priests in their households, did not follow Æthelwold in his dramatic expulsions of secular clerks and replacement by monks. Æthelwold links the terms'filth' and'clergy' several times in his writings, regarding them as impure and unfit to serve altars or engage in any form of divine service, because many of them were married and they did not follow a monastic rule.

To Æthelwold's admirers, the epithets "father of monks" and "benevolent bishop" summarize his character as reformer and friend of Christ's poor. He is said to have written a treatise on the circle and to have compiled the "Regularis Concordia"; the Benedictines were superior to the secular clergy in their learning and their schools. Æthelwold taught the older pupils at Winchester, their works show that they regarded him with great respect and affection. His surviving works in both Latin and Old English show that he was a great scholar, his vernacular writings are believed to have played an important role in the development of Standard Old English; some of the wealth he accumulated was used to rebuild churches, he was a major patron of ecclesiastical art, although none of his works survive, only written accounts remain. The artistic workshops he established continued to be influential after his death, both at home and abroad. A century Æthelwold had acquired a great reputation as a goldsmit

1995–96 Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C. season

The 1995–96 season was the 97th season of competitive league football in the history of English football club Wolverhampton Wanderers. They played the season in the second tier of the English football system, the Football League First Division. Although the season began with Graham Taylor as manager, he resigned sixteen games into their league campaign under fan pressure due to the team's poor results. Despite being tipped by many to be one of the promotion favourites - following on from having reached the play-offs in the previous season - the side sat in 18th place at the time of Taylor's exit. After a period under caretaker manager Bobby Downes, Mark McGhee resigned from Leicester City to become Wolves' new manager in December. Despite a slow upturn in results under McGhee that put the team within three points of a play-off place at the start of April, their form again collapsed and they took just four points from the final 24 available; the club finished the season in 20th place, only confirming their safety from relegation in their final home game.

This represented their lowest finish in the football pyramid since returning to the second level in 1989–90. A total of 24 teams competed in the Football League First Division in the 1995–96 season; each team played every other team twice: once at their stadium, once at the opposition's. Three points were awarded to teams for each win, one point per draw, none for defeats. Teams finishing level on points were firstly divided by the number of goals scored rather than goal difference; the provisional fixture list was released on 20 June 1995, but was subject to change in the event of matches being selected for television coverage or police concerns.
