Chapter Summary

Isaac, or Isach, was emperor at Constantinople. In any event, he had a brother called Kyralexius, surnamed Andronicus, whom he had redeemed from the pagans in the third year of captivity. In Bulgaria, which lies between Hungary and Greece, a certain Ioannitsa, lord of Bulgaria and Vlachia, ruled at the city of Tirnovo. Nivelon, bishop of Soissons, returned to Gaul from Constantinople, bearing with him many relics of the saints. While enroute, he died in Apulia and was buried in the church of Saint Nicholas in Bari. In his will, indeed, he bequeathed the relics that he had in his possession to various churches. To the church of Châlons-sur-Marnehe donated an elbow from the arm of Saint Stephen, and Bishop Garnier sent the head of Philip the Apostle to Troyes.
