is said to have been the disciple of it. Kentigern, who followed him in all of his excellences. Kentigern committed to his charge, at first, the care of his monastery; and when he was recalled to his first charge, with the consent of the people, consecrated him his successor in the bishopric. Asaph wrote the Ordinations of his Church: a Life of St. Kentigern: and some other works. How long he filled the see, and when he died, is altogether unknown, as also are the names of his successors until Gilbertus.. We read, indeed, of a bishop of St. Asaph in a general British council in 943, but his name does not appear.
