(f. 153.)
To Humphrey Audeley, nobleman, donsel, and Elisabeth, noblewoman, relict of James Lottrell, of the diocese of Bath and Wells. Absolution from sentence of excommunication incurred by their having formerly, not being ignorant that they were related in the second degree of affinity, contracted marriage per verba legitime de presenti, and consummated it, although they did not have it solemnized before the church; with dispensation to contract the said marriage anew (de novo), have it solemnized before the church and remain therein, decreeing the offspring born, if any, and that to be born of the marriage legitimate for all legal purposes. (fn. 2)Oblate siquidem nobis. (G. de Piccolominibus. | lxxx. A. de Urbino. N. [de] Benzis.) [In the margin: Februarii and Jo. Horn, O. Principis. 2/3 p.]

(18 June.)
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 164d.)
To David Bayn, abbot of the Cistercian monastery of Cupar in the diocese of St. Andrews. Indult to have a portable altar. Registered briefly, with address and ‘salutem etc. Sincere devotionis affectus etc. Altare portatile in forma, sub data Rome apud sanctum Petrum anno…’ (G. de Piccolominibus. | x. S. Planas. Jo. de Veneriis.) [In the margin: Junii.]
Ibid. The like for James Leuinton, precentor of Dunkeld. ‘Simile pro Jacobo Leuinton precentori (sic) ecclesie Dunkeldensis salutem etc. sub eadem data taxa et scriptore.’ (G. de Piccolominibus. | Jo. de Veneriis.)

(28 May.)
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 181.)
To the bishop of Dunkeld, and Oliver Principis and Gilbert de Kerick (rectius Rerick), canons of Angers and Glasgow. Confirmation, as below. The recent petition of abbot David and the convent of the Cistercian monastery of Cupar in the diocese of St. Andrews contained that the chapter-general of the order (seeing that on account of floods of the sea, the surprises of enemies, wars and divers other calamities with which those parts had been and were continually being afflicted, its rents etc. were so much diminished that the abbot and convent could not easily continue to pay therefrom to the said chapter-general the yearly sum of 20l. of the realm of Scotland, which they were bound to pay thereto and which they had paid hitherto, and to maintain themselves and bear their other burdens) freed and absolved the monastery and the abbot and convent for the time being from such obligation, requiring them, in lieu thereof, to pay to the said chapter or to the abbot of Cîteaux 400 new gold crowns of the mint of the king of France in a single payment within a certain fixed time. (fn. 3) At their said petition, alleging that they have made satisfaction to the said abbot of Cîteaux in respect of the said 400 crowns, the pope orders the above three, if they find the said liberation and absolution to be lawful, to confirm them and their consequences by papal authority and order them to be observed. Que pro monasteriorum. (G. de Piccolominibus. | xxxv. S. Planas. Jo. de Veneriis.) [In the margin: Julii. 1½ pp.]


  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern red leather label, with: ’Pii ii. Secret. L. xvi. T. xlvi,’ and on the bottom edge of the volume the usual contemporary description: ‘L (?) iiii. Anni viti d(omini) Pii ii.’ and ‘,xvii (?).’ Inside is part of a notarial instrument on parchment, almost completely erased, the notary's sign manual being, however, still visible. There are no Rubricelle. The text embraces ff. i. to cccviii, so that the volume is thinner than usual. At the end of the text on the last leaf is the usual ‘Gasper Blondus.’ In the top margin of f. i. is ‘Li(ber) ii.’
  • 2. ad omnes juris effectus legitimam decernentes, an unusual addition.
  • 3. quadringentas coronas auri novas de cugno regis Francie unico con textu infra certum terminum tunc expressum solvere tenerentur.
