To the bishop of Dunkeld. Mandate as below. The recent petition of George de Murray, a canon of the Augustinian monastery of Inchaffray (Insule Missarum) in the diocese of Dunblane, contained that on the voidance of the said monastery by the death of abbot John, the prior and convent unanimously elected as abbot the said George, then a monk (sic) of the said monastery, in priest's orders, a bachelor in theology and of noble birth by both parents; that he consented to the election and obtained its confirmation by authority of the ordinary by the administration of blessing, and in virtue of the said election and confirmationobtained possession of the rule and administration. The said petition adding that he doubts whether the election and confirmation or administration of blessing hold good, the pope hereby orders the above bishop, if he find George fit, to approve and confirm the said election and confirmation if found canonical, and moreover, pro tutiori cautela, to make provision to him of the said monastery, whose fruits etc. are taxed in the papal Camera at 100 gold florins of the Camera, and according to the common assessment do not exceed a yearly value of 39l. sterling. Before George receives the rule and administration in virtue of these presents, he is to take to the above bishop the usual oath of fealty according to the form enclosed, faculty to receive which the pope hereby grants to the bishop, and George is to send to the pope the said oath by his letters patent, sealed with [his] seal, by his own envoy as soon as possible (fn. 2) ; without prejudice to the bishop of Dunblane, to whom the said monastery is by ordinary right subject.

In the loop of the ‘P’ of ‘Pius’ is again the letter ‘L.’) [3½ pp. Eubel, Hierarchia Catholica, II, p. 130, has the date of the obligation, viz. 22 Dec. 1458, from the Obligationes, vol. 76, f. 163.

(f. 47d.)
To John Valente (or Valence), elect of Tenos (Tinen). Provision, at the petition of Henry king of England and Thomas bishop of Bath and Wells, to him, a canon of the Augustinian monastery of Blithburgh in the diocese of Norwich, and holding by papal grant and dispensation the parish church of St. Laurence, Lydiard, in the diocese of Bath and Wells, in priest's orders, of the church of Tenos, so long void that there is no knowledge of the true mode of its voidance. As soon as he has had the present letters expedited, he is to betake himself to the said church and reside therein in person, and shall not exercise pontifical offices without his city and diocese. Romani pontificis. (P. and Alanus. | P. xx. de Varris.) [1½ pp. Eubel, Hierarchia, II, p. 276, under Tinen. in patr. Hierosolym., tit. has Joannes Valens (de dioec.Bathon. et Wellen.) and the year 1459. He gives, however, no reference for the provision, which does not appear to be recorded in the Obligationes, vol. 76, 1441–1461, nor is it in Gams, Series Episcoporum. See below, Reg. Lat. DXLVIII, ff. 46d., 68d. and 69.]

(f. 50.)
To Simon elect of Connor. Provision to him, a Friar Preacher, in priest's orders, and a completed (formatus) bachelor in theology, of the church of Connor, specially reserved during the life of bishop John by Nicholas V, who, upon its voidance by the death of the said John, made provision to the late Patrick, who, however, died without the Roman court before the letters of provision had been drawn up, so that the church is still void as above and still reserved. As soon as Simon has had the letters of provision expedited, he is to betake himself to the said church and reside there in person, and shall not be able to exercise pontifical offices without his city and diocese. Apostolatus officium.
Concurrent letters to the chapter of the church of Connor— Hodie ecclesie vestre; to the clergy and to the people of the city and diocese—Hodie ecclesie Conneren., and to the archbishop of Armagh—Ad cumulum. (Jo. and A. de Piscia. | Jo. xx. x. x. x. x. de Montemirabili.) [3 pp. The tax shows that the usual letter to the vassals or that to king Henry has been inadvertently omitted. Eubel, Hierarchia, II, p. 163, in a note to the united sees of Dunen. et Conneren. has ‘Ecclesiae Dunen. et Conneren. 1439 Jul. 29 uniuntur ad invicem cedente vel decedente altero ipsarum eccl. episcopo (Obl. 66, 47). Richardus a. 1451 primus nominatur ep. Dunen.et Conneren. Sed 1459 Febr. 16 se obligat ad solv. serv.comm. Simon ep. Conneren. (Obl. 76, 165). !’ The Obligationes, vol. 76, f. 166 (not 165) has, however, under the year 1459:—
Die xvi. mensis Februarii reverendus in Christo pater dominus Simon electus Conneren. obtulit camere apostolice et collegio pro suo communi servicio florenos auri de camera centum, ad quos dicta ecclesia taxata reperitur, et quinque minuta servicia consueta. Eorundem autem etc. Jo. de Aquilone, notarius.
Dicta die Leonardus de Vernaciis institor societatis de Medicis de Romana curia habuit bullas expeditas super dicta ecclesia Conneren. sub sigillo prefati domini Gillifortis, et promisit infra sex menses proxime futuros solvere tam pro communi pape quam cardinalium florenos auri de camera centum et alia minuta servicia superius annotata, aut restituere dictas bullas sub dicto sigillo camere apostolice ubi curia Romana erit etc.Jo. de Aquilone, notarius:
from which it appears that it was Simon himself, and not Richard, who bound himself, and that Eubel's note of exclamation is therefore unnecessary. There is no mention of Nicholas V's provision to the late Patrick in Cal. Papal Lett., Vol. X. The present bull of provision by pope Pius is printed ‘Ex Archivo Apostolico, Libro xi. fol. 50,’ i.e. the present Register, in Ripoll, Bullarium Praedicatorum. Vol. III (Rome, 1731), p. 435, whence Th. de Burgo (Burke) in Hibernia Dominicana (Kilkenny, 1762), p. 475.]

II, p. 87, has the date of the obligation of ‘Thomas Vaus' (sic), viz. 22 Dec. 1458, from ‘Obl. 76, 163,’ but wrongly conjectures that the see was void ‘ob. Thomae.’ The Obligatio gives the name of the bishop's proctor, viz. Robert de Foresta, clerk, of the diocese of St. Andrews, but only the bishop's own Christian name Thomas. See above, f. 33, Cal.

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Pio ii. 1458. Anno 1. Lib. (blank).’ A modern flyleaf has Mgr. Wenzel's ‘to. 13. An. 1.’ There is no contemporary flyleaf, but the bottom edge of the volume has the usual contemporary description, hardly legible: ’Primus de provisionibus prelatorum et de dignitatibus vacantibus anno primo domini nostri domini Pii pape secundi.’ There are i-cccxvii ff. of text.
2 Volumus autem quod dictus Georgius antequam regimen et administrationem dicti monasterii vigore presencium recipiat, in manibus tuis fidelitatis debite prestet solitum iuramentum, iuxta formam quam sub bulla nostra mittimus interclusam, ac tibi ut ac ipso Georgio nostro et Romane ecclesie nomine predictum recipias iuramentum per easdem presentes concedimus facultatem, quodque ipse Georgius formam iuramenti huiusmodi quod prestabit nobis de verbo ad verbum per ipsius patentes litteras sub sigillo signatas per proprium nuncium quantocius destinare procuret. The words from ‘ac tibi’ to ‘facultatem’ are added in the margin by P. [de Varris].
3 i.e. the usual name in the margin is wanting.
4 Volumus autem quod idem antistes qui tibi prefatum munus impendet, postquam illud tibi impenderit, a te nostro et Romane ecclesie nomine fidelitatis debite solitum recipiat iuramentum iuxta formam quam sub bulla nostra mittimus interclusam, ac formam iuramenti quod te prestare contigerit nobis de verbo ad verbum per tuas patentes litteras tuo sigillo signatas per proprium nuncium quantocius destinare procuret.
5 Also spelt ‘Yckilichan,’ ‘Okilichan’ and ‘Ykilchan.’
6 Here the dedication does not occur, but in the further mentions of the monastery the text simply speaks of the ‘monasterium beate Maris,' without repeating the name of the place.
7 The usual name in margin is wanting.
8 quatenus vos vel alter vestrum ab eodem episcopo nostro et Romane ecclesie nomine fidelitatis debite solitum recipiatis iuramentum iuxta formam quam sub bulla nostra mittimus interclusam; formam autem juramenti quod dictus episcopus prestabit nobis de verbo ad verbum per eius patentes litteras suo sigillo signatas per proprium nuncium quantocius destinare curetis.

10 Colonien.’ of the text is cancelled and over-written P(etru)s, and ‘Clonen.’ is substituted in the margin, with the subscription P[etrus de Varris].
11 Similarly corrected.
12 Similarly corrected.
13 Corrected in the same way as in the preceding notes from ‘Ducen.’ to ‘Duacen.’
