Footnotes

  • 1. There is no Lateran Register CCCCXLIX. In the recently prepared hand-list of the Lateran Registers is the note: ‘manca per errore di numerazione.’ On the back of the present volume CCCCL is the usual modern label, in Italian: ‘Nicolò V. 1448. Anno 2. Lib. 1.’ A flyleaf has, in different contemporary hands, ‘Vidi T.’ [de Tervisio], ‘R(ecipe) Guil. O.’ [Pontanus], and (in the hand of T. de Tervisio, as in earlier cases) ‘Primus de vacantibus prevendis anno secundo domini nostri Nicolay pape Vti. .’ A like contemporary description occurs also, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume, but with the words ‘prebendis vacantibus’ in their usual order. The text comprises ff. 1–302.
  • 2. cuique cura habitu licet non actu imminet animarum.
  • 3. quedam alia ad quasdam decimarum particulas de Kyllrykyllet Tullachmachrusglaynd de communitate ccclesie Clonfertensis nuncupatas et in titulum perpetui sine cura beneficii ecclesiastici assignari consuetas pertinentia bona dilapidare. … Cf. below, f. 270.
  • 4. Clonen., rectius Cluanen.
  • 5. The surname Oheagra’ is added in the margin by An(tonius) [de Adria].
  • 6. licet illos postea dilectus filius nullo sibi desuper titulo suffragante canonico per triennium et ultra detinuerit prout detinet indebite occupatos, i.e. the name of the detainer is inadvertently omitted, unless the error consists in writing ‘dilectus filius’ instead of ‘dictus Philippus.’ The error has escaped the vigilance of the ‘Corrector.’
  • 7. vocatis dicto Philippo necnon aliis qui fuerint evocandi.
  • 8. amoto exinde dicto Philippo et quolibet alio illicito detentore.
  • 9. ad particulas decimarum de Kyllconhyergndet Kyllhillayn de communitate dicte ecclesie Clontertensis nuncupatas ac clericis secularibus in titulum perpetui beneficii assignari solitos (sic) nonnullabona dilapidare et distrahere ac in suos usus detestabiliter convertere non expavcrunt.
