De Provisionibus.

1396.
12 Kal. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 8.)
To John Colschestre. Provision to him, a Benedictine monk of Colchester, in priest's orders, of the see of Orkney, void by the death of bishop Henry, during whose lifetime it was reserved to the pope.
Concurrent letters to the chapter, to the clergy and to the people of the city and diocese, to the archbishop of Throndhjem (Nidrosien.), and to Margaret, queen of Norway.
3 Kal. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 9d.)
To Gregory (inserted in margin), bishop of Kilmacduagh (Duacen.). Provision anew of that see, void by the death of bishop Nicholas, during whose lifetime it was reserved to the pope. Upon the pope's learning, on 3 Id. Oct. anno 4, of the death of Nicholas, he made provision of the see to Gregory, who was then dean and in priest's orders. Before the papal letters of provision were made out, and without the pope's mandate, Gregory had himself consecrated and assumed the administration of the episcopal mensa, afterwards causing all the above to be set forth to the pope in consistory. As the provision, by reason of his neglect to have the letters expedited and lodged in the chancery within a year, is void, he is now absolved from the sentence of excommunication incurred, is rehabilitated, and receives fresh provision as above.
Concurrent letters to the chapter, to the clergy, to the people of the city and diocese, to the archbishop of Tuam, and to king Richard.
2 Kal. Aug.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 13.)
To John de Heremo. Provision to him, an Augustinian friar, papal minor penitentiary, in priest's orders, of the see of Bazas, which was reserved to the pope by Urban VI. during the episcopate of the late bishop John, became void by that bishop's adherence to the antipope called Clement VII. and had not been disposed of by Urban VI. when he died. The present pope translated thither from Aire the late Maurice, who died before the papal letters were made out.
Concurrent letters to the chapter, to the clergy and to the people of the city and diocese, to the vassals of the church, to the archbishop of Auch, and to king Richard.

Appointment anew, during the pope's pleasure and after the example of Urban VI, as administrator of the see of Coutances in the islands of Jersey and Guernsey (Gerseyo et Greneseyo) only, with the disposal of the goods of the episcopal mensa therein of the see. Lately Urban VI. with the counsel of the cardinals, to whose number the present pope then belonged, made provision to Peter, on its voidance, of the see of Nantes. Afterwards learning that Peter could not obtain administration of the episcopal mensa because those who held the temporal dominion in those parts were adherents of the antipope called Clement VII, Urban VI. seeing that — although the church of Coutances, in the province of Rouen, was also in such [schismatic] parts and was detained by a certain schismatic — the clergy and people of the said islands were, as they still are, obedient to him and the Roman church, appointed Peter, a master of theology, administrator during his pleasure of the church of Coutances in the said islands only, which appointment expired with that pope's death.
