Bishop of York.From Northumbria he graduated through Lindisfarne, and took a trip to Rome before landing a top job. Never mind London — York was the capital of England at the time.
He had plenty of conflicts with Church and State, and was exiled on occasion.
During a famine, he took a fishing trip to Sussex and taught the locals a thing or two about seafood. He almost created the traditional British dish known fish and chips — But there were no chips as potatoes had not reached England yet.
