|Annulment, as below. The pope has recently learned that although Vincent Clementis, canon of Valencia (Valentin.), S.T.M., a subdeacon of the pope, holds a canonry and prebend and also the provostship in the church of Valencia, he seems to wish to obtain, by a papal grant, as he alleges, a dignity in the said church. At the petition, therefore, of Alfonso, cardinal priest of SS. Quatuor Coronati and bishop of Valencia, and of the chapter of Valencia, the pope hereby annuls all letters granted to Vincent in regard to such dignity. Ad fut.rei mem. Ea que Romani pontificis. (A. de Florencia. Coll. S. Cousin. Jo. de Vulterris. Gratis pro persona domini cardinalis.) [1 p.]|
