86 The see of the bishops of the West Saxons was originally at Dorchester, now a viUage about seven miles from Oxford, and they are sometimes called bishops of Dorchester, as in the case of Headdi who died in 70.3. who was sometimes styled bishop
��of Dorchester, sometimes bishop 'if' Wiin and Munetimes
bishop of the West Saxons, but after the see of the West Saxons was permanently divided, no more is heard of the bishops of Dor- chester in connexion with that diocese. The prelates who sat at Dorchester while it was the chief seat of the bishops of the West Saxons, were Birinus, Hegelberht, Wini, Leutherius, Headdi. See Winchester.
