(f. 166.)
To the bishop of Clogher, Luke de. Vivianis, a canon of Ferentino, and Thady Macgillacosgly, a canon of Clogher. Mandate as below. The recent petition of Bernard Ocathasaich, priest, of the diocese of Clogher, contained that after Bartholomew Ocathasaich, scholar, of the said diocese, had falsely set forth to the late Calixtus III that the said Bernard had celebrated in contempt of the Keys, and therefore deserved to be deprived and removed from the perpetual vicarage of the parish or collegiate church of St. Laserianus (fn. 7) de Damynis in the said diocese, which he was then and is now holding, the said pope ordered certain judges [not here named], after the usual accusation etc., to deprive and remove Bernard, and in that event to collate and assign the vicarage to Bartholomew; that, after the letters had been presented to the said judges, and after citation only had been made, an agreement by oath was made by the intervention of a friendly compositor to the effect that Bartholomew should give up all right belonging to him and the said letters, and that Bernard should pay [to him] a certain portion of tithe yearly etc.; and that afterwards, upon Bartholomew's renouncing the said agreement, Bernard, wishing to be agreeable to Bartholomew, (fn. 8) promised by oath to pay him a certain sum of money yearly, which he has hitherto done, thereby incurring the sentences etc. promulgated for simony. The pope therefore has ordered the above three by other letters to absolve Bernard from the guilt of simony, and from his oath, and from all sentences etc. incurred on account of the foregoing, enjoining penance etc., and to dispense him on account of irregularity contracted, and rehabilitate him, the pope at the same time requiring him to resign the vicarage. The vicarage being therefore still void as above, the pope hereby orders the above three to collate and assign it, value not exceeding 4 marks sterling, to Bernard. Vite etc. (P. and A. de Tuscanis. | P. Gratis pro deo. Octavo Id.Septembris Anno Tertio. de Varris.) [3½ pp. See Cal. Papal Lett., Vol. XI, p. 315.]

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ’Pio ii. 1460. Anno 2. Lib. 2.’ On the inside of the cover is Mgr. Wenzel's’An. 2. to. 17.’ There is no contemporary flyleaf, but the contemporary description occurs as usual on the bottom edge of the volume, viz. ‘Secundus de beneficiis vacantibus anno iio . domini nostri domini Pii pape secundi.' There are i.-cccxvi. ff. of text.
2 Also written ‘Balengarga.’
3 necnon rectoriam parrochialis ecclesie decanatus nuncupate de Mayo dicte diocesis.
4 nulli in dignitate constituti sint.
5 coram nonnullis fide dignis testibus in defectum notarii publici.
6 consanguineam.
7 The text apparently had ‘Lascoriani’. This is cancelled and overwritten ‘P[etru]s,’ and in the margin P[etrus de Varris] has substituted what may be Lascirani, in very vague writing.
8 volens se eidem Bartholomeo gratum exhibere.
9 The ‘cna’ has been corrected and is therefore not clear.
10 The ‘c’ between the ‘a’ and the ‘g’ was apparently inserted after the word was written.
