Footnotes

  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ’Calisto iii. 1455. Anno 1. Lib. 1.’ A water-stained flyleaf has the contemporary description: ‘Secundus de prebendis et dignitatibus ac prebendis vacaturis anno primo (altered by a contemporary hand to ‘9to’ i.e. ‘quarto’) domini nostri domini Calisti pape iii.’ Above this description is the partly legible order ‘R(ecipe) Cri., P. de Varris’ (i.e. the name P. de Varris is again in full) and below it is ‘Rubricatus est.’ On the bottom edge is also the usual contemporary description: ‘Secundus de prebendis et dignitatibus et prebendis vacaturis anno primo domini nostri domini Calisti pape iii.’ F. i. is headed: ‘De prebendis et dignitatibus vacaturis anno primo.’ There are ff. i–cccviii. of text, of which several are blank.
  • 2. ‘aut,’ presumably an error for ‘necnon.’ as in the next following letter.
  • 3. On f. 169, under date 1455, 12 Kal. May (20 April) anno 1, is a collation etc. to Hugh Forster, M.A. and a proctor of causes in the Roman court, licentiate in canon and civil law, of a canonry with reservation of a prebend etc. of St. John's Novimonasterii (i.e. Neumünster) Würtzburg (Herbipolen.). See Reg. Lat. DXXI, note to f. 90, below, p. 308. Forster is a mediaeval German name.
