After helping to repair the Grande Chartreuse Monastery which was destroyed in an avalanche, he was rushed through the ranks against his inclinations for solitude.He went from Abbot at Portes to Bishop of Bellay in record time. Here he enforced clerical celibacy and had a run-in with the local count Humbert III who he had excommunicated.
When ANTHELM lay dying Humbert rushed in just in time to beg forgiveness and receive a blessing.
