Archbishop and founder, also called Bogimilus and Theophilus. He was born into a noble family near Dobrow, Poland. While studying in Paris, France, with his twin brother, Boguphalus, he was ordained a priest in a church near Dobrow. His uncle, the archbishop of Gnesen, made him the chancellor of that city. When his uncle died, Bogumilus succeeded him. Bogumilus founded a Cistercian abbey at Coronawa. He resigned his see in 1172, opposed by his archdiocesan clergy because of his strictness. Bogumilus joined the Camaldolese at Uniedow, Poland.
