From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Synod of Twyford was a synod of the early English church held in 684 and described by Bede in his Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum, Book IV, ch. 28. The synod was held at a place called "Adtwifyrdi", the location of which is unknown. Archbishop Theodore presided over the synod in the presence of King Ecgfrith; bishop Tunberht of Hexham was deposed there and Cuthbert elected bishop of Lindisfarne.[1]
