St. Peter's, Rome.
|To the archbishop of Bordeaux. Refusing the pope's assent and authority to certain articles agreed to by the archbishop of the one part and the mayor, sub-mayor and jurats of the other part, concerning the jurisdiction and liberty of the church of Bordeaux, immediately subject to the pope and the Roman church, which articles the pope considers insufficient. Against encroachment on the said jurisdiction and liberty he wrote last year to the sub-mayor and jurats, and also wrote to king Henry requesting him to aid in expediting the matter. If without delay the said church and its diocese be restored to their former liberty and jurisdiction, the pope gives his consent to the said articles: if not, he decrees them null and void, and will proceed against those who encroach on the said jurisdiction. Dudum iura ecclesie.|
