Prid. Kal. June.
(31 May.)
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 298.)
To the archdeacons of Dunblane and Dunkeld and the provost of Abbirnethy in the diocese of Dunblane. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of the abbot and convent of St. Mary's Lindores, O.S.B., in the diocese of St. Andrews, contained that although the right of presenting to the perpetual vicarage of Dunde in the diocese of Brechin has belonged to them from time immemorial, yet the late John bishop of Brechin, wrongfully claiming the same, on the vicarage becoming void by the death of Richard Erag (rectius Crag), rejected the presentation made by the abbot and convent within the lawful time, and made collation to Richard Wily, clerk, of the said diocese of Brechin, thereby despoiling the abbot and convent of their right of presentation. The pope therefore orders the above three to summon, the said bishop having recently died, the present bishop of Brechin and the said Richard and others concerned, and, restoring the abbot and convent, to hear both sides and decide what is just without appeal, causing their decision to be observed by the present bishop by the pope's authority, and by others by ecclesiastical censure. Exhibita siquidem nobis. (P. and A. de Cortesiis. | P. xvi. de Varris.) [1½ pp. See Cal. Papal Lett, X, pp. 250, 251 and below, Reg. Vat. DXIV, f. 2.]

To the dean and the archdeacon of Ardagh and Eugenius Oradochain, a canon of the same. Mandate to summon the below-named bishop and others concerned, and to collate and assign to Peter Magaurughan, a canon of the Augustinian priory of St. Mary, Drumlean, in the diocese of Kilmore, the said priory, conventual and with cure of souls, dependent on the monastery of St. Mary without the walls of the town of Kenlys in the diocese of Meath, (fn. 5) value not exceeding 20 marks sterling, which became and is still void at the apostolic see and therefore ipso facto reserved, by the promotion, made by the present pope, of Thady bishop of Kilmore to that church, and by his consecration which was administered to him by the pope's grant at the said see; the said Peter stating that he is illegitimate, being the son of unmarried parents, that after he entered the said monastery and made his profession he had himself promoted to all even holy orders, that the said bishop has for about a year unduly detained the said priory in commendam under pretext of certain papal letters which are surreptitious because he falsely stated therein that the fruits etc. of his episcopal mensa were so slender that he could not be maintained therefrom, whereas in fact they were then, as at present, so abundant that he could and can be decently maintained, and that he cannot safely meet the said bishop in the city and diocese of Kilmore. Peter is hereby dispensed to receive and retain the said priory, notwithstanding the said defect etc. Religionis zelus etc. (P. and G. Gonne. | P. xxx. Id. Julli Anno Secundo. de Varris.) [3¼ pp.]

Footnotes

  • 1. et a monasterio eiusdem bcate Marie ex[tra] muros opidi Kenlys dicte diocesis Midensis diocesis dependet. Not only is the text incorrect, but the leaf, like those which precede and follow, is much injured by wornholes, one of which has made ‘muros’ almost illegible.
  • 2. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Calisto iii. 1456, Anno 2. Lib. 1.’ The contemporary flyleaf has gone, but on the bottom edge of the volume is the usual contemporary description: ’Primus de beneficiis vacantibus et de regularibus anno secundo domini nostri domini Calisti pape tercii.’ F. i. is headed: ‘de beneficiis vacantibus anno secundo domini Calisti pape iii.’ There are ff. i–cccxiii. of text, some of them being blank.
  • 3. Cum itaque ut accepimus dimidia pars decimarum ville ruralis de Cluayntomosg Elphinensis diocesis, que olim ad co[m]munitatem ecclesie Elphinensis antequam separata et dissoluta esset spectabat, et que canonico dicte ecclesie loco canonicalis portionis sive prebende assignari solet, prout jam dum vacat assignatur, … vacaverit et vacet ad presens.
  • 4. The scribe had written ‘Malachias’ correctly, but cancelled it and substituted ‘Machalias’ in the margin. The latter is in turn cancelled and overwritten ‘C(onradu)s’ [de Montepolitiano], ‘Malachias’ being substituted below it and subscribed ‘C.’ Further on in the text the scribe has written ‘Machalias,’ which has escaped detection, and has also written the correct spelling of the name.
  • 5. The ground on which the pope's mandate is based does not appear
