Footnotes

  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Calist. iii, 1456. Anno 2 Lib. 1.’ The contemporary flyleaf has disappeared, but on the bottom edge of the volume is the usual contemporary description, hardly legible: ‘Primus de litteris dominorum cardinalium, de provisionibus, de diversis, de [officio] tabellionatus, de plenaria [remissione], et de altaribus portatilibus anno secundo domini nostri domini Calisti pape tercii.’ F. i. is headed: ‘De litteris dominorum cardinalium [anno] secundo.’ There are i–cclxvii. ff., a few of which are blank.
  • 2. suorum salutis status et honoris immemores fameque sui [sic] prodigi et dei timore postposito dilectos filios conventum et (this word is added in the margin by P. [de Varris]) fructus redditus et proventus dicti monasterii beate Marie in duas partes sectionem symoniacam damnabiliter incurrendo dividere, necnon ab eisdem conventu sic divisis sibi obedienciam et reverenciam exhiberi facere, ac se pro abbatibus ipsius monasterii beate Marie gerere, fructus quoque redditus et proventus huiusmodi sibi respective usurpare, necnon mala malis accumulando res et bona dicti monasterii beate Marie dilapidare distrahere et alienare ac inutiliter consumere, et ut a suis canonicis sustineantur illos diversis criminibus irretitos impunitos in suis criminibus insordescere permittere non expaverunt
  • 3. Volumusquod idem antistesab eo [Riscerdo] nostro et Romane ecclesie nomine fidelitatis debite solitum recipiat juramentum juxta formam quam sub bulla nostra mittimus interclusam, ac formam juramenti quod ipse Riscerdus prestabit nobis de verbo ad verbum per eius patentes litteras sub (rectius suo) sigillo signatas per proprium nuncium quantocius destinare procuret.
  • 4. domino loci percelluullate (rectius parcelle uillate) de Quarley.
  • 5. dilecto filio nobili viro Roberto Hungerfordi senior doming loci de Hungerford. A cross in the margin draws attention to the two errors, but they are not corrected.
  • 6. From about this point to near the end of the volume, when he resumes the usual practice, P. de Varris simply subscribes his name thus, without embodying in it, in the usual way, the amount of the tax.
  • 7. In the bottom margin of ff. 203d, and 232d. is ‘Visa per me Cosmam de Monteferrato confessorem s(anctissimi)d(omini) n(ostri); on ff. 206d. and 215d., 249d. is ‘Visa per me ut supra Cosmas’; on f. 221d. is ‘Visa per me ut supra Cosmas manu propria,’ and on f. 239d. ‘Visa ut supra Cosmas.’
  • 8. In the year ‘sexto’ is cancelled and overwritten ‘C(onradu)s,' ’septimo’ being substituted in the margin by ‘C(onradus) [de Montepolitiano.].’
  • 9. et dilecte in Christo filie Johanne eius impresentiarum uxori. The combination of the mention of the wife's name with the expression ‘impresentiarum’ is usual.
  • 10. Here again with ‘eius impresentiarum uxori.’
