Roger of Salisbury was a Bishop of Bath and Wells.

Life

He was a canon of Salisbury by 3 July 1223 and was a theology lecturer at Salisbury by 30 September 1225. In late 1226 or early 1227 he acquired the prebend of Netheravon in the diocese of Salisbury. [http://british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=34261 British History Online Prebends of Netheravon] accessed on 23 September 2007] In 1223 he had the prebend of Teinton Regis in the diocese of Salisbury, and held that prebend until he became bishop. [http://british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=34275 British History Online Prebend of Teinton Regis] accessed on 23 September 2007] He was named to the office of precentor of Salisbury in early 1227. [http://british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=34221 British History Online Precentors of Salisbury] accessed on 23 September 2007]

He was elected about 3 February 1244 and consecrated 11 September 1244.Fryde "Handbook of British Chronology" p. 228] His election was contentious because the canons of Wells, who had been promised the ability to participate in the election of the new bishop, were instead excluded. Eventually, William of Bitton I, who eventually succeeded Roger as bishop, managed to arrange a compromise.Shaw "Button , William (d. 1264)" "Oxford Dictionary of National Biography" [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/4236 Online Edition] accessed 15 November 2007] He died 21 December 1247 and was buried at Bath. [http://british-history.ac.uk/report.asp?compid=34341 British History Online Bishops of Bath] accessed on 23 September 2007] He should not be confused with Roger of Salisbury, Bishop of Salisbury, who died in 1139.
