Footnotes

  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Calisto III. 1458. Anno 4. Lib. 1.’ The flyleaf, with the contemporary description, is gone, together with ff. i. and ii. The partially legible contemporary description survives, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume, the extent of the injury being shown between the vertical lines; ‘Primus de p|reben|dis| vacantibus de provisionibus prelatorum de prebendis et dignitatibus vacantibus de officio tabe|llionatus de alt|aribus portatilibus|et de plenaria [remissione] anno iiii. domini nostri domini Calisti pape iii. The vol. contains ff. iii–cclxxvi. of text, some of which are blank.
  • 2. i.e. Maurice Macconcubaiar, as spelt (with a query) in Eubel, Hierarchia, II, p. 108, bishop from 1452 to the present year, when he apparently died. For the provision, dated 26 Jan., 1451–2, of Maurice [O'Connor] to the see of Ardfert, see also Cal. Papal Lett., Vol. X, p. 518.
  • 3. The academic degree of the dean of Limerick which this incipit implies, is not mentioned.
  • 4. eundem Thadeum Macconmara possessioni eorundem canonicatus et prebende tunc etiam incumbentem.
  • 5. Elphinen. et Aladen. dioc(esum).
  • 6. The house to which he belongs is not named.
  • 7. The house to which he belongs is not named.
  • 8. Volumus autem quod idem antistes qui tibi prefatum munus impendets postquam illud tibi impenderit, a te nostro et Romane ecclesie nomine fidelitati, debite solitum recipiat iuramentum, iuxta fromam quam sub bulla nostra mittimus interclusam, ac formam iuramenti quod te prestare contingerit [sic] nobis de verbo ad verbum per tuas patentes litteras tuo sigillo signatas per proprium nuncium quantocius destinare procuret. There is the usual hesitation about this last word, which has been corrected either from ‘procures’ to ‘procuret’ (as it ought to be) or vice versa. See a similar instance of the same uncertainty in Reg. Vat. CCCCXLI, f. 277 above, p. 35, the third footnote.
  • 9. abbatem monasterii beate Marie Vallisregalis Cisterciensis ordinis Cecestrensis [sic] diocesis.
  • 10. Here with ‘procures’ at the end of the oath taking and sending clause, and not corrected to ‘procuret.’
  • 11. i.e. without the usual name in the margin.
  • 12. Here rightly with ‘procuret’ in the oath taking and sending clause, The hesitation on the part of the scribes of the Register between ‘procures’ and ‘procuret’ in these letters of the same type to bishops elect is, as already noted, very marked. Thus ‘procures,’ uncorrected, occurs six times, viz., on ff. 122r, 126d, 144r, 146r, 151r, 153d, whilst ’procuret,’ uncorrected, occurs only once, viz., on f. 156d, as already noted. On f. 132d, in a similar faculty in the case of an abbot elect, the word is again ‘procuret,’ uncorrected, and on f. 136d the word is corrected from ‘procures’ to ‘procuret,’ or vice versa, probably the former, as already noted.
  • 13. i.e. without the usual name in the margin.
  • 14. The text was ‘Eboracensis diocesis,’ but ‘diocesis’ is cancelled and superscribed ‘P(etru)s [de Varris].’
  • 15. On ff. 139r, 141d, 259d and 263r is ‘Visa per me Cosmam etc.,' and on ff. 245d and 268r is the fuller Visa per me C. electum Gerunden. See above, p. 297 note.
