To the bishop of Killala (Aladen.), the prior of Crosmalina in the diocese of Killala, and the dean of Killala, Mandate as below. The complaint of Morianus Macsorgail (? recte Macfergail) a canon of the diocese (sic) of Killala. contained that for a few years past a number of nobles and non-nobles of those parts have in the city and diocese of Killala, contrary to the customs of the nation of Ireland, sacrilegeously despoiled, openly and furtively, by theft and by force, churches and ecclesiastical persons, both secular and regular, of their goods, namely cows, sheep and other animals, and even of their very (propriis) garments, wickedly compelled them by hard blows (diris verberibus) to give them food (cibaria), persecute them with divers injuries, and even slay them, as has at the present time been perpetrated in the person of their bishop, (fn. 5) and at times compel them to celebrate masses and other divine offices in the presence of the excommunicate. At the petition of the said Morianus to the pope to provide a remedy for him, who has by the sons of iniquity been despoiled of all his cows and his other goods, in order that greater losses may not befall him, especially as he is not a native of the said city and diocese, and is without temporal favours therein, the pope hereby orders the above three to monish all those who have despoiled, or shall despoil Morianus of his goods, to restore them within a certain term and make satisfaction to him, and if they do not, to issue a general sentence of excommunication against them, and cause it to be published, from which absolution cannot be given, save in the hour of death or after the making of satisfaction, except by the archbishop of Tuam, whom the pope hereby orders to defend Morianus against the said invaders.

  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Pio ii. 1462. Anno 4. Lib. 2,’ and on a modern flyleaf is Mgr. Wenzel's ‘An. 4. to. ix.’ There is no contemporary flyleaf, but the usual contemporary description of the volume occurs on its bottom edge, viz.: ‘Secundus de diversis formis anno iiii. domini nostri domini Pii pape ii.’ The text extends from f. [v.] to f. cccviii. The first 4 ff. have gone entirely, and the following 12 are injured by damp, the outer edges having more or less gone, and with them the foliation corners. The heading ‘de diversis formis’ occurs on f. 25.
  • 2. On f. [v]r. is a dispensation dated apud Hearmu(m)? Fontis in the diocese of Chiusi, 1462, 3 Kal. Aug. anno 4, to Richard Neel, clerk, of the diocese of Bayeux, by both parents of noble birth, in about his twentyfirst year and a student in the faculty of arts in the university of Caen.
  • 3. ‘quinquaginta’ of the text is cancelled and over-written ‘O[ctavianu]s,’ and in the margin is substituted ‘quatraginta’ (sic), subscribed O. [Pontanus].
  • 4. ‘de Fern’ is substituted in the margin for a cancellation of the text, and is subscribed: Cassatum et correctum de mandato domini R(oderici) Valentin., vicecancellari, P. de Varris.
  • 5. ac eciam prout modernis temporibus in personam sorum episcopi perpetratum est inhumaniter occidere non verentur….
