The Synod of Benevento was an ecclesiastical council in Benevento, a Roman town northeast of Naples, Italy on the Appian Way. “In the Roman Rite, the practice of the faithful receiving ashes on Ash Wednesday has been universal since the Synod of Benevento in 1091” writes Project Editors Thomas Carson and Joann Cerrito in The New Catholic Encyclopedia, Catholic University of America, Washington, DC, and Gale Group, Farmington Hills, MI. In addition Anglo-Saxons performed this ritual one hundred years earlier, making Ash Wednesday’s importance wide spread and not just part of the Catholic Roman Rite which encompasses all Catholic ceremonies.
