 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: London
In 314 Restitutus, Bishop of London, was present at the Council of Arles, and legend purports to have preserved the names of several of his predecessors and successors (Geoffrey of Monmouth), a claim which the modern historian, Dr. Stubbs (Episcopal Succession), treats with respect.
London at this time consisted of a collection of low wooden houses thatched with reeds or straw, thus affording combustible material for the numerous and destructive fires which frequently broke out, as in 1087 when the greater part of the city, including St. Paul's, was burnt.
The bishop himself and many of his clergy were imprisoned and after the excommunication of Elizabeth, in 1570, the martyrdoms began again, reaching their height in point of numbers in 1588, the year of the Spanish Armada.

 ORB - Medieval English urban history - Maldon - Government
In 1287 the bishop and the king (as guardian of the underage heir of the other lordship of the town) were suing the townsmen for infringing various traditional lordly rights.
Some measure of release from overlordship came to Maldon at the beginning of the fifteenth century, when the Bishop of London granted various jurisdictional rights to the townsmen in return for payment of an annual farm, reserving to himself only a few relatively minor local sources of revenue.
At the election in January 1404 we see the result of the Bishop of London's grant the previous year, for two bailiffs were elected – the second superseding the Bishop's administrative officer in the town.

But the Bishop did not take that line of thought at all, and we are glad that he did not.
It is indeed true, as Wordsworth said, that it is dangerous to look on tyrants with a dazzled eye, and one might add that it is not quite safe for most men to take as their models those who are generally estimated to be successful men.
On the whole, therefore, we say with the Bishop that success in life is a dubious object of desire, since it is connected inextricably with so much that wars against the soul.
