Footnotes

  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ’Calisto iii. 1456. Anno 2 (corrected in a more recent hand to ‘1. 2.’) Lib. 1.’ A flyleaf has in different contemporary hands: ‘Primus de provisionibus prelatorum et de prebendis vacantibus anno secundo’ and ‘R(ecipe) L., P.’ [de Varris.]. A like contemporary description occurs also, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume, viz. ‘Primus de provisionibusanno secundo (as above) domini nostridomini Calisti pape iii.’ There are ff. i. to cccvii. of text.
  • 2. Eubel, Hierarchia, Vol. II, p. 197, has the wrong date 7 June 1456, and refers to Obl. 72, 71, which has the right date, having in fact, ‘Die lune decima mensis Maii mcccclvi. sanctissimus dominus noster dominus Calistus pape iii. anno secundo pontificatus sui, ad relacionem reverendissimi domini P[etri Barbi] cardinalis sancti Marci, ecclesie Lymiricensi, tunc per obitum bone memorie Johannis Michäl (sic) eiusdem ecclesie ultimi episcopi extra Romanam curiam defuncti vacanti, de persona venerabilis viri domini Thome Leggher canonici regularis monasterii de Dunstaple ordinis sancti Augustini canonicorum et (sic) regularium Lincolniensis diocesis provincie Cantuariensis decretorum doctor[is] et in sacerdotio constituti providit, preficiendo illi [sic] in episcopum et pastorem, curam regiminis etc. Eubel refers also to Gams, p. 227, where the above bishop elect is described as ‘Thomas intrusus.’ In fact John Mothel remained bishop till his resignation in 1458, dying circ. 1468 (Eubel and Gams, ad loc.).
  • 3. dilectis filiis archidiacono Enachdunen, et Thome Obrayn canonico Tuamen. invicem unitarum ecclesiarum: i.e. two executors only, unless, as seems probable, there is an omission.
  • 4. Hesitatingly written in the Register.
