St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 88d.)
To the abbot of Kells (de Diserto [sic] fonte Conneri), the prior of Muegmuoir (fn. 2) in the diocese of Connor, and the archdeacon of Connor. Mandate (the pope having been informed by John Omulcham, priest, of the diocese of Armagh, that Magonius Oconne, a canon of Armagh, is an open and notorious fornicator, has laid violent hands on one Patrick, (fn. 3) clerk, of the said diocese, and, having been therefore excommunicated, has celebrated mass and other divine offices, even in contempt of the Keys), inasmuch as the said John, fearing Magonius's power, has no hope of obtaining justice in the city and diocese of Armagh, if and after John accuses Magonius before the above three, to summon Magonius, and if they find the foregoing to be true, or enough thereof for the purpose, to deprive and remove him, and in that event to collate and assign his canonry and prebend of Balimcluig in Armagh, value not exceeding 6 marks sterling, to John. Vite etc. (P. and A. de Amelia. | P. x. Quarto Id. Januarii Anno Tertio. de Varris.) [3¼ pp.]

To the priors of Achras and Cros, in the diocese of Killala (Aladen.), and the official of Killala. Mandate to collate and assign to Mulerus Bared, a canon of Killala, who has been received as a canon of that church by authority of the ordinary, the prebend of Ardach therein and the perpetual vicarage of Kyldroma in the diocese of Killala, value not exceeding 1 and 3 marks sterling respectively, so long void by the respective deaths of Felimy Oloclyn and Oliver Hyndeber that by the Lateran statutes their collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, although Cornelius Oduda, priest, of the said diocese, who is to be summoned and removed, falsely alleging in an impetration of the said prebend and vicarage from Nicholas V that he was a canon of Killala, has for more than two years unlawfully detained possession under pretext of letters obtained from the said pope, which were therefore surreptitious. Vite etc. (P. and H. Mashe[i]m. | P. xii. Nono Kal. Februarii Anno Tertio. de Varris.) [2¼ pp. See Cal. Papal Lett., X, p. 707.]

Footnotes

  • 1. On the back of the volume is the erroneous modern description in Italian: ‘Calisto iii. 1456 (rectius 1457). Anno 2 (rectius 3). Lib. 1.’ The contemporary flyleaf has gone, but on the bottom edge is the usual contemporary description: ‘Primus de prebendis vacantibus de regularibus et de provisionibus prelatorum anno iii. domini nostri domini Calisti pape tertii.’ F. i. is headed: ‘de prebendis vacantibus anno tertio.’ There are ff. i–cclxxxiii. of text.
  • 2. This name is ill written. It may also be read ‘Muegmuur.’ The ‘e’ ought in any case to be a ‘e’
  • 3. His surname is not given and no blank space left for it, so that it has evidently been inadvertently omitted by the scribe of the Register.
  • 4. On f. 113 is a grant dated at St. Peter's, Rome, 1458, 17 Kal. May (15 April), anno 3, and addressed to Hugh Forster, canon of S. Mary's, Erfurt, in the diocese of Mayence, a licentiate in canon and civil law. The executors are the bishops of Spoleto and Merseburg and the provost of Nuremburg. See Reg. Lat. DXVIII, note to f. 34, above, p. 300.
  • 5. Volumus autem quod idem antistes qui tibi prefatum munus impendet postquam illud tibi impenderit, a te nostro et Romane ecclesie nomine fidelitatis debite solitum recipiat juramentum iuxta formam quam sub bulla nostra mittimus interclusam, ac formam juramenti quod te prestare contugerit (rectius contigerit) nobis de verbo ad verbum per tuas patentes litteras tuo sigello signatas per proprium nuncium quantotius destinare procures (rectius procuret).
  • 6. qui si qui sint per eosdem infidelcs et Christiani nominis inimicos detentur et occupantur. In spite of this, Cal. Papal Lett., VIII, p. 427, shows that it is really the see of Mayo in Ireland which is meant.
  • 7. formam autem juramenti quod dictus episcopus prestabit nobis de verbo ad verbum per eius patentes litteras suo sigillo signatas per proprium nuncium quantocius destinare procuretis.
