Persons associated with this Event:
(King of the Northumbrians and successor of Ecgfrith 4, 686-705) : After a period of peace followed by alternating periods of amity and discord, Aldfrith 1 banished Wilfrid 2 from the kingdom of Northumbria. Dissension broke out between Aldfrith 1 and Wilfrid 2 because 1) the church of St Peter (i.e., Ripon) had been unjustly deprived of its lands and possessions; 2) after a privilege had been given for Ripon it lost its liberty by being converted into an episcopal see; and 3) Aldfrith 1 required obedience to the orders and decrees issued by Theodore 1 from the middle part of his rule when there was discord rather than at the beginning or end of his rule, when there was harmony.
(Bishop of York and Saint, d.709) : After Aldfrith 1 banished Wilfrid 2 from the kingdom of Northumbria, Wilfrid 2 went to Æthelred 1 and lived under his protecxtion, enjoying great reverence from the see that Seaxwulf 1 had held before his death.

(Archbishop of Canterbury, 668-690) : At the beginning and end of Theodore 1's rule he had issued canonical statutes at a time when all the churches were in canonical harmony; Aldfrith 1 chose to enforce the decrees from the middle period of his rule when discord had arisen in Britain.
(King of the Mercians, 675-704, d.?716; abdicated, Abbot of Bardney) : Æthelred 2 received Wilfrid 2 with honour after his banishment and kept him under his protection.
