Instructions to the bishops of Winchester and Lincoln as to the collection of the Holy Land tenth. B. bishop of Grosseto, has been before instructed to resolve certain doubts which have arisen in this matter. Tithe is not to be taken from lazar and poor houses, nuns, and other religious, whose revenues are small, and who are obliged to beg, are exempted; also secular clerks, whose whole income does not exceed 6 marks. Monks’ pittances are not to be tithed, nor the exenia of prelates and other ecclesiastics; but those who sell the income of their benefices in which residence is not required are to pay the tenth, as are also vicars and beneficiaries. Provisions are made concerning woods, pastures, meadows, fisheries, hunting, and other rights; those who from monasteries and churches obtain priories, granges, houses, rents, pensions, and cess, are to be dealt with according to the circumstances of each case. Money procurations made by prelates are to be tithed. Necessary expenses only may be deducted by those who have to pay the tenth. Officials, judges, and others are to have certain expenses allowed; bakeries and mills are to pay the tenth. Marriage and burial fees, fees for sealing, fines paid by excommunicate persons are to be tithed, as are also legacies left to churches and offices; the tenth is to be paid in the current money of the lord of the land in which it is collected, and none are to be compelled to change it; bishops and abbots and other honourable ecclesiastical persons are to be left to their consciences to pay what is due, but those who pay nothing, or, knowingly, less that is right, are to be compelled by ecclesiastical censure; rectors who have many parishioners and have to provide one or more chaplains may deduct the salary of these. Funds for the fabric of churches are to pay the tenth; but alms and oblations for building and other offerings are exempt, as are monies collected for the poor, and for lights, crosses, and chalices. Prelates and clerks of whatever rank and condition who are out of the realm (exules) are to pay the tenth. Expenses for trenching and improving lands, repairing mills, houses, barns, and the like are not to be deducted nor are those for maintaining castles. Small oblations received by parsons for their churches, for burials, and for penances are to be tithed. Daily distributions of church proceeds, as pope Clement ordered, are to be tithed. The tenth of fruit and vegetables which are sold is to be paid, also that of flocks and herds; what is eaten or used by the owners is exempt.

Directions to the bishops of Winchester and Lincoln to choose discreet men to collect the tenth as above, and to make an exact return of the persons paying and sums paid without fear or favour. The collectors whose income does not exceed 100 marks are to be exempted from the tithe. The money collected is to be kept until the pope orders it to be paid over to the king.

To the same, complaining that papal letters concerning ccclesiastical matters are not allowed to be presented, and persons cited are not permitted to leave the realm, and that in other ways ecclesiastical liberty is infringed; the pope has already written to the king by Bartholomew, late bishop of Grosseto, on this subject, and now tells him that such things cannot be passed over, and that as no answer has been made to the said letters, the king must correct and amend what has been done, and must also write to the pope promising to do this and to fulfil his intention with regard to the Holy Land.

(f. 184d.)
To the same. John de Sancto Johanne and Roger called ‘Lestrange,’ knights, the king's envoys, have presented their letters of credence. It is not fitting that great and grave matters should be treated in letters of credence, nevertheless the pope has received them and the envoys with paternal affection, and is glad to hear that the king's zeal and fervour about the Holy Land are not less than before: with regard to the tenth of those realms whose rulers have not personally gone to the Holy Land, for which the king asks, the pope replies that if there is any residue it shall be disposed of as he desires; but to avoid uncertainty the pope tells him that from the tenth in France none has come to the hands of the church, nor from Castile, pope Gregory having granted it to king Alphonso: from Almain and the north very little indeed has come, as indeed is accounted for by the known condition of those parts; how much may be expected from elsewhere it is not difficult to compute; expenses are great, but whatever can be produced shall be sent: with regard to the payment of the remainder of the tenth of England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland on Midsummer day next, the pope, although he has no means of knowing the amount, is ready to hand over to the king whatever residue has been agreed on between him and the church: as to the king's petition about the tenth of the Cistercians for six years past, although it was taxed at 100,000 pounds of Tours, nothing has been received by the church, but it is hoped that it has been applied to sending galleys in aid of the Holy Land: the pope is ready to compel those who, having taken the croes, are personally bound to join the expedition, but before issuing an edict it seems right to ascertain the time and place at which they are to set out and land: as to the legate, for whom the king asks on the crusade, the pope will send one as soon as he hears that the king is ready to set out; and at the king's request takes him and all barons, nobles, knights, and others accompanying him under the protection of the apostolic see.
[Langlois, 913.]
Ibid.. To the same, reminding him that the tenth had been assigned to him on condition of his setting out for the Holy Land, and that the compact so made must be carried out, which the pope has no doubt he will do.

(f. 185.)
To the same, complaining that papal letters relating to ecclesiastical affairs are not allowed to be presented, and that bearers of them are seized, ecclesiastics imprisoned for light offences, and not permitted to be cited beyond the realm, and that ecclesiastics having ordinary jurisdiction are not suffered to exercise church censures; and prelates and clerks are forced to answer before lay judges in regard to non-feudal lands and possessions belonging to their churches, and other interferences with the liberty of the church. The pope's letters on these matters, sent by Bartholomew, late bishop of Grosseto, have received no answer, although the king's envoys, John de Sancto Johanne and Roger called ‘Lestrange,’ have declared that the king is at peace with the prelates and clergy of his realm, and is ready to do justice to all; the pope therefore calls upon the king to rectify these things, and to give an answer to each particular.
[Langlois, 915.]
Ibid. Mandate to Master Geoffrey de Veçano, papal legate, to lay before the king the letters sent by B. late bishop of Grosseto, and to obtain from him a written answer.

To the same, informing him that his request, sent by his envoys, that the pope would allow the yearly cess of 1000 marks, which the king is bound to pay in regard to the realm of England and Ireland, to be paid in some churches of the said realm, is not agreeable to the honour of the apostolic see, nor of advantage to the king, and that he therefore cannot alter the decision made by Nicholas III. in regard to a like petition.
Ibid. Mandate to Master Geoffrey de Veçano, papal nuncio, to lay before the king the letters sent in answer to his request about the business of Scotland, and to inform the pope of what has been done.
