To David Odonchir, clerk, of the diocese of Kilmacduagh (Duacen.). Grant as below. It was set forth by him to Calixtus III that after he had been dispensed by papal authority on account of illegitimacy, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, he, in virtue thereof, obtained, collated to him by authority of the ordinary and with the consent of the lay patrons, the rectory of the parish church of Desert Ceallaig in the diocese of Kilmacduagh, value not exceeding 3 marks sterling, and detained it for more than a year without having himself ordained priest, and without dispensation for the purpose; that he afterwards obtained, also by authority of the ordinary, a canonry of Kilmacduagh and the prebend of Kyndmara therein, value not exceeding 2 marks sterling, then void by the resignation of David Valen(tis) to Denis bishop of Kilmacduagh; that on account of the slenderness of the fruits etc. of the said canonry and prebend and rectory he obtained, with the consent of the said patrons, the union by authority of the ordinary, for the term of his life, of the said rectory to the said canonry and prebend; that he obtained provision by papal authority of the deanery of Kilmacduagh, a major non-elective dignity with cure, value not exceeding 10 marks sterling, on its voidance by the death of Denis Ydubgilla, in virtue of which provision he obtained the deanery; that subsequently, on account of the slenderness of the fruits etc. of the deanery, he procured for his life the union thereto by authority of the ordinary, with the consent of the chapter of Kilmacduagh, of the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Behac in the same diocese, in virtue of which union he obtained that vicarage, value not exceeding 3 marks sterling; and that he was detaining all the said benefices. The said pope Calixtus therefore absolved him on 15 Kal. Aug. anno 4 (18 July, 1458) from all sentences of excommunication etc., and rehabilitated him, requiring him to resign all the said benefices. Inasmuch as the said pope died before his letters were drawn up, the pope hereby decrees that these presents shall suffice as proof thereof. Racioni congruit. (P. and Rizonibus. | P. xx. de Varris.) [22/3 pp.]


  • 1. On the back of the volume is the modern description in Italian: ‘Pio ii. 1548 (roughly corrected in modern ink and pencil to 1458’) Anno 1. Lib. 2.’ There is not the usual contemporary description on a flyleaf, but only ‘To. 8. An. 1’ in the hand of the late Mgr. Wenzel, Prefect of the Vatican Archives. On the bottom edge of the volume, however, is the usual contemporary description, almost illegible: ‘Secundus de diversis formis anno primo domini nostri domini Pii pape secundi.’ The heading ‘[de] diversis [formis]’ occurs also at the top of f. 26r. (rectius 25r.) There are ff. i.-cccxxii. of text.
