Trade made the kine rich and healthy, and the feeding was good again. Sixty years after Augustine’s death, the Christian churches held the Whitby Synod to discuss whether the northern Britons and the Welsh should comply with the doctrines of Rome. The Irish-influenced Christians of the north spoke against the Saxon bishops, but the Saxons carried the day. The change was not immediate, but this synod effectively marked the end of the Celtic Church of Britain and Ireland. It also marked the time when the Cainites became most interested in interfering in the affairs of the Church.

Remembered forever as Ethelred the Unready, he failed to prevent renewed Danish incursions. By AD 1013, the Danes had conquered, and King Canute of Denmark became King of England as well. Canute dismantled the army and some of the machinery of the English state, seeing England as a prominent province of his northern empire. He took Ethelred’s widow to wife and established powerful independent earldoms, further emasculating the English nation. After Canute’s death, his sons split the Danish empire between them.

King Richard directed much of his energies against the Saracen foe, crusading in the Holy Land. In his absence, he entrusted the realm to William Longchamp, Bishop of Ely. However, many barons were not comfortable with a man of God gaining such power. See once more how the Devil’s own servants recoil from and conspire against those who commit their lives to the service of Christ. The king’s younger brother, the abominable John, quietly built himself a power base composed of these heretical barons, while his brother did God’s work.
