9 Kal. Feb.
(f. 1d.)
To David Falconer, licentiate of civil law, vicar of Monros in the diocese of Brechin. Conferring on him the dignity of papal chaplain, with the enjoyment of all its privileges, graces, exemptions, liberties, immunities, honours, and prerogatives.
8 Kal. April.
(f. 33d.)
Relaxation of one year and forty days of enjoined penance to penitents who on the principal feasts of the year, those of St. Mary Magdalene and the dedication, the octaves of certain of them, and the six days of Whitsun week; and of forty days to those who on the said octaves and six days, annually visit and give alms for the repair of the chapel of the hospital of St. Mary Magdalene, Muschilburgh, in the diocese of St. Andrews, the buildings of which, as likewise of the hospital, have been so destroyed by the wars raging in those parts, that the poor and infirm and lepers, who were wont to resort thither in great numbers, cannot be received and lodged.
15 Kal. March.
(f. 33d.)
To Walter bishop of St. Andrews. Faculty—seeing that all the bishops of Scotland are immediately subject to the Roman church, that appeal from them must therefore be made immediately to the apostolic see; seeing moreover that, as his petition contains, such appeals from them and other ordinaries of the realm, and from judges delegate and sub-delegate by papal letters in the realm, are frequent, and are attended by delay of justice, so that suitors sometimes implore remedy from the secular power, to the prejudice and loss of ecclesiastical liberty — to hear and decide without appeal causes in any first appeals whatsoever lodged (interponi) at the apostolic see from the said bishops, ordinaries, and judges, and to cause his decision to be observed, invoking, if necessary, the aid of the secular arm.
(f. 34.)
To the same. Indult to visit by deputy, when hindered by sickness or any necessity, churches, monasteries, and other ecclesiastical places of his city and diocese and the persons thereof, and to receive the procurations due therefrom in ready money, in accordance with the constitution of Benedict XII. beginning Vas electionis [see Reg. cclxxxiii. f. 214d]. Those who cannot pay in full are to pay according to their means; those who cannot pay anything are not to be compelled.
1 Id. Jan.
(f. 44.)
To David, Augustinian abbot, and the convent of Holyrood, Edinburgh. Indult that he and his successors may promote any of the canons present and future to the four minor orders and that of acolyte, and may bless chalices, corporals, altarlinen (toballias), and vestments, in the said monastery and places subject to it, without requiring the licence or assent of the ordinaries.
Ibid. Relaxation of enjoined penance to penitents who annually visit and give alms to the fabric of the church of St. Mary, Qwytkyrk (Owytleyrele in Rubrice), in the diocese of St. Andrews, situate a day's journey from the boundaries of the enemies of the realm, and renowned for miracles wrought by Jesus Christ, through the intercession and merits of St. Mary: to those who do so on the six feasts of our Lord, and on the feasts of Whitsun Day, the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, All Saints, and the dedication, one year and forty days; to those who do so on the four feasts of St. Mary, three years and three quadragene; to those who do so on the octaves of certain of the above and the six days of Whitsun week, fifty days.
19 Kal. Feb.
(f. 80.)
To the bishop of Dunkeld, and the archdeacons of St. Andrews and Brechin. Mandate, on the petition of Robert king of Scotland, and if the facts be as stated, to give to David de Strevelyne, canon of Glasgow, clerk of the king, and member of his household, to whom the pope has lately made provision of a canonry of Glasgow, with reservation of a prebend and dignity, personatus, or office, the church of Ketires, in the diocese of St. Andrews, said to be appropriated to the Trinitarian minister and friars of the Bridge of Berwick in the same diocese, adherents of Bartholomew, sometime archbishop of Bari; they, or any other detainer thereof, being removed.
15 Kal. Aug.
(f. 95.)
Declaration that the appointment as papal chaplain, made on 17 Kal. July, anno 7, of the late John More, canon of Glasgow [see Cal. Pet. i. 527], held good from that date, even though, as it is said, the appointment did not come to his knowledge. (In Rubrice, “John More is declared to have been and to be a chaplain of the apostolic see.")
12 Kal. Sept.
(f. 132d.)
To Raymund Gilberti, a Friar Minor. Mandate to absolve from excommunication, a salutary penance being enjoined, Amaneus (Amedeus in Rubrice) de Moyssida, knight, of the diocese of Périgueux, and a number of his men. Upon the capture by the English of the place of Caslarium in the diocese of Limoges, during the wars in the duchy of Aquitaine, certain armed men of the society of English, of which Amaneus was captain, destroyed during his absence and without his knowledge a certain chapel near the ditch (fassatum) of the said place, which served the enemy as an ambush against the garrison and fortalice (custodie et fortalicis), with the intention of building a similar chapel within the same, which could not afterwards be done and would now be useless, the said place having been destroyed by fire, and remaining still without inhabitants.

De Communibus.

12 Kal. Sept.
(f. 182.)
To the official of Limoges. Mandate to summon those concerned, and, if the facts be as stated, to restore Avallonus Richardi to his preceptory of the united Augustinian houses of St. Anthony, Plantadis (de Plantatis), and Eatang (de Eastans), in the diocese of Limoges, provision of which, upon its expected voidance by Avallonus obtaining by provision of the pope possession of the preceptory of the Augustinian house of St. Anthony, London, void by the death of Geoffrey de Limova or Limona, the pope ordered to be made to Gondamarius de Angoriaco, canon and penitentiary of the monastery of St. Anthony, Vienne, of the same order; Avallonus, by reason of the detestable schism of the pestiferous man Bartholomew, having been and being unable to obtain the said possession.
