Cist., in the diocese of St. Andrew's, S.T.B., of lawful age and in priest's orders, of the above monastery of Kynlos, void by the death of John, during whose lifetime it was specially reserved to the pope's gift. Before receiving the administration, he is to take to the bishops of St. Andrews and Brechin, or one of them (whom the pope has by other letters ordered to receive it from him in the pope's name) the usual oath of fealty, according to the form enclosed (cf. the next following faculty).

St. Mark's, Rome.
(f. 174.)
To George Micreff (cf. above, p. 558), abbot of the monastery of Inchaffray (Insule missarum), O.S.A., in the diocese of Dunblane. Provision, as below. Pius II, on its voidance by the death of abbot Nicholas, during whose lifetime its provision had been specially reserved by that pope, made provision of it to William Hadinchton, a canon of the same. Subsequently a dispute arose between the above George and the said William about the rule and administration, the former alleging that he had been elected by the convent, and that the election had been confirmed by authority of the ordinary, that provision had thereafter been ordered to be made to him by papal authority, and that the said William unlawfully opposed the said election, confirmation and provision, and prevented them from taking effect, the said William alleging on the other hand that the monastery lawfully belonged to him. The cause having lawfully devolved to the Roman court by the said George's appeal, the said pope committed it, at George's instance, to Master Anthony de Grassis, then, as now, a papal chaplain and auditor, and, after he had proceeded short of a conclusion, the present pope (upon being informed by the said George that the said William, before his said provision, had taken possession of the rule and administration without any title or other tittle of right, de facto and by secular power, had intruded himself, and had, by simoniacal and illicit means and also by violently constraining certain of the canons, got himself elected abbot), called up the said cause to himself, and gave viva voce commission to Berardus, cardinal priest of St. Sabina's, to make inquiry and report. Having learned from the said cardinal's report that many of the foregoing statements are true, and that even George himself has not a full right in or to the said rule and administration, and having this day declared by other letters the provision of William and the letters thereof null and void, and, having removed him from the rule and administration (see ibid.), and the monastery being therefore still void, as above, and consequently still reserved, the pope hereby makes provision of it to the said George, a canon professed thereof, a completed bachelor of theology, (fn. 8) a papal chaplain, in priest's orders, and of a race of barons. Debitum pastoralis officii.
Concurrent letters to the convent and to the bishop of Dunblane, (fn. 9) Hodie monasterium; and to James, king of Scots, Gracie divine. (Hug. and A. de Piscia. | Hug.xvi. viii. viii. viii. Folani, prot. Bisuntin.) [42/3 pp.]

To Donatus Offerallyl and Eugenius Oradachan, canons of Ardagh, and the official of the same. Mandate (the pope having been informed by Cormac Magabr[e]nan, perpetual vicar of the parish church of Tempuillpuit (recte Tempuillpurt) in the diocese of Kilmore, that John Magbrian, who behaves as prior of St. Mary's, Drumlean, in the said diocese, O.S.A., in order to obtain that priory made with John, abbot of Kells (de Kenlys), O.S.A., in the diocese of Meath, on which monastery the said priory depends, a simoniacal agreement that if the said abbot collated and made provision to him of the said priory, and if he got possession by the abbot's help, he would pay him a large sum of money, as he subsequently did, whereupon the said abbot made him de facto collation and provision, under pretext of which he obtained possession, and still detains it, thereby incurring the sentences etc. promulgated against simoniacs), if the said Cormac (who was lately dispensed by papal authority on account of illegitimacy, as the son of a priest, professed as a canon of the said order, and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, and who for fear of John's power cannot safely meet him in the city and diocese of Kilmore) will accuse John before them, to summon John and others concerned, and if they find the foregoing to be true, to decree and declare the said collation and provision null and void, and remove John from his said detention, and in that event to collate and assign the said priory, conventual and with cure, and value not exceeding 20 marks sterling, to Cormac, even before he receives the habit of the said order and makes his regular profession as a canon; causing him to be given the said habit, and to be received as a canon of the said monastery, and receiving his profession. The pope hereby grants him indult, that he shall be bound to receive the habit and make his profession after, and not before, he has obtained possession of the said priory, and that nevertheless the said collation and provision etc. shall hold good, as if the had received the habit and had made his profession, and also dispenses him to receive and retain the priory, and rule it in spirituals and temporals, notwithstanding the said defect, etc. As soon as he has received the habit and made his profession, etc., he shall resign the said vicarage.

Humilibus supplicum votis. (Hug. and A. [de] Cortesiis. | Hug. x.Folani prot. Bisuntin.) [1⅓ pp.]
