Order to the minister provincial and the Friars Minors in England to give up within a month the site in the town of St. Edmund called ‘Bery,’ which is under the spiritual and temporal jurisdiction of the Benedictine abbot and convent of that place, and to desist from building dwellings and a church thereon, removing what is begun, notwithstanding the grant made to the minister provincial by pope Alexander to build a house and have an oratory and cemetery there if a site were granted by devotion of the faithful, or in any other just way. A papal indult had been granted to the said abbot and convent, that no chapel or oratory should be built within a mile of their altar without their consent, and the Friars Minors, having obtained a site, were ordered to give it up by pope Alexander; but thereupon another was granted to them for a temporary dwelling, within the prescribed limit, by sub-delegates, as they say, appointed by the archbishop of Canterbury and the dean of Lincoln, who said they were deputed to do so by the pope; and the Friars Minors relying on the secular power held it, and began to build, to the prejudice of the said abbot and convent.
