De Curia.

7 Id. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 115.)
To Peter, bishop of Dax, papal chamberlain and nuncio. Faculty to him, whom the pope is sending to England, Aquitaine and other parts, to grant to all ecclesiastics of England, to the king, if and as far as he stands in need, and to laymen thereof, of whatsoever estate or rank, a salutary penance being imposed, absolution from the sentences and penalties incurred under the pope's late annulment [Cal. Lett. IV. 277] of all the ordinances and statutes made by king Richard in parliament at Westminster against ecclesiastical liberty and the Roman church, after, however, such annulment shall have taken place, and after they shall have obtained the fulfilment of the other requirements of the pope; a number of the inhabitants of the realm being desirous, as the pope has recently learned, to revoke the said statutes, to desist from observing them, and to return to the bosom of the church. Faculty is given to grant dispensation to ecclesiastics on account of irregularity, if any, contracted when under the said sentences, to restore them to their benefices and to relax interdicts. Dudum omnia ordinamenta. (De curia.)
7 Id. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 116.)
To the same. Faculty—a number of persons of the said realm and parts having, through simplicity, ignorance of the law, their own temerity or otherwise, and without canonical title, intruded themselves or been intruded into divers benefices—to make a composition with them in the name of the camera with regard to the fruits they have received, to receive from them sums of money in accordance with such composition, and to give acquittance; to rehabilitate them, upon their resigning such benefices to him and making the said satisfaction for fruits; to grant them absolution, a salutary penance being enjoined, from excommunication and other penalties incurred; to grant them dispensation on account of irregularity, if any, contracted when under such sentences; and to make to the same persons, after such resignation, collation and provision of their benefices, secular and regular, even if they be canonries and prebends or dignities, major or principal respectively, personatus or offices, with or without cure, in metropolitan, cathedral or collegiate churches, or be priories, even conventual, and be elective, even if so long void that their collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, or if they be generally or specially reserved. Such persons are to resign any other benefices incompatible with those thus conferred, and the nuncio is to certify the camera or its collector with regard to names and dates. Cum te pro quibusdam. (De curia.)
