St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 239.)
To the archdeacon of the church of St. Andrews, the provost of St. Salvator's in the same [city] and the official of Brechin. Mandate, as below. The pope lately (upon its being set forth to him on behalf of the abbot and convent of the Benedictine monastery of St. Thomas the Martyr, Aberbroth, in the diocese of St. Andrews, that although a number of parish churches of divers other dioceses had been united thereto, and that by special privilege it had been granted to them not to be bound to attend annual diocesan synods etc., except that only of the bishop of St. Andrews etc. (fn. 12) ) ordered certain judges [viz. the bishops of Orte and St. Andrews and the abbot of Dunfer[m]lim] to inhibit all bishops and ordinaries, excepting only the bishop of St. Andrews, their ordinary, to molest the abbot and convent etc., and granted faculty to the abbot or the claustral prior or other his deputy to constrain debtors etc. by ecclesiastical censures, and absolve them upon making satisfaction, etc. as above, Reg. Vat. CCCCLXXXV, f. 275d.; and afterwards, upon its being related to the pope by Thomas bishop of Aberdeen that the greater part of the parish churches of his diocese were united to divers monasteries of the order of St. Benedict and others, etc., he ordered the bishop [and the dean and archdeacon] of Glasgow, if they found that the said letters had emanated from false pretences, to annul them and their contents, as far as regarded parish churches in the city and diocese of Aberdeen only, etc., as above, Reg. Vat. DIX., f. 123. The recent petition of the said abbot and convent contained that the said bishop Thomas, in pursuance of the said later letters, brought them before the present bishop of Glasgow, who is said to have proceeded in the cause, short of a conclusion. At the said petition (adding that their said united churches in the diocese of Aberdeen are not in a state of ruin nor lacking in ecclesiastical ornaments, but that on the contrary inspection shows that they are in no worse condition nor divine worship less well served therein than in the neighbouring churches of the diocese, and alleging that the said bishop Thomas has powerful supporters in those parts), the pope hereby calls up the said cause to himself, orders the above three to summon bishop Thomas or the bishop of Aberdeen for the time being, and others concerned, and if they find the statements of the abbot and convent to be true, to annul the said later letters granted to bishop Thomas, and to approve and confirm the said earlier letters granted to the abbot and convent, and their contents, so that they shall apply even to parish churches in the said diocese of Aberdeen united to the monastery, and in the event of their doing so to inhibit anew, pro potiori cauthela, bishop Thomas and the bishop of Aberdeen for the time being from molesting the abbot and convent and the tithe-payers etc. and the debtors of the monastery, and from doing the other things contained in the said earlier letters, and, in the event of disobedience to the said inhibition, to proceed to the declaration of the incurring (incursus) of the said pains etc., as in the said letters, without appeal. Justis et humilibus. (G. de Piccolominibus. | Gratis de mandato domini nostri pape. A. de Urbino. A. Oriens.) [In the margin: Januarii. 3 pp. +. See the following confirmation and mandate.]
Ibid. (fn. 13)
(f. 240d.)
Confirmation etc., as below. The pope recapitulates his late mandate to certain judges [viz. the bishops of Orte and St. Andrews and the abbot of Dunfer[m]lim], ordering them to inhibit all bishops and ordinaries, except only the bishop of St. Andrews, their ordinary, to molest etc. the abbot and convent of Aberbroth in regard to their appropriated churches in whatsoever diocese, etc. (fn. 14) as above, Reg. Vat. CCCCLXXXV, f. 275d., and also his later mandate to the bishop [and the dean and archdeacon] of Glasgow, at the petition of Thomas bishop of Aberdeen, to annul the said earlier letters as far as regarded parish churches in the city and diocese of Aberdeen only, etc., as above, Reg. Vat. DIX, f. 123. At the recent petition of the said abbot and convent, containing that inspection shows that their said united churches in the diocese of Aberdeen are in no worse condition than other parish churches of the said diocese, and that in consequence of the said later letters granted to the said bishop Thomas a number of suits have arisen before the present bishop of Glasgow between bishop Thomas and them, and asking for the confirmation of the said earlier letters granted to them, and the inhibitions made by virtue thereof, etc., as far as regards their united churches situate without the city and diocese of Aberdeen) the pope, holding the state of the cause between bishop Thomas and the abbot and convent etc., and the tenour of the said earlier letters, to be expressed in these presents, as if inserted verbatim therein, hereby confirms and approves the said earlier letters and all their contents and the inhibitions made in virtue thereof to any ordinaries and others, and all other proceedings taken by the executors thereof, as far as regards churches situate without the said city and diocese, and decrees that they have full and perpetual force, notwithstanding the said later letters etc. Ad perp. rei mem. Ad onus apostolice servitutis. (G. de Piccolominibus. | Gratis de mandato domini nostri pape. A. de Urbino. A. Oriens.) [In the margin: Januarii. 2¾ pp. See the preceding and following mandates.]
Ibid. (fn. 15)
(f. 242.)
To the archdeacon of the church of St. Andrews and the provost of St. Salvator's in the same [city] and the official of Brechin. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of the above abbot and convent of St. Thomas the Martyr, Abberbroth, contained that although the perpetual vicars of certain parish churches situate in divers dioceses annexed to the said monastery are, by ordinance approved by papal authority, bound to repair the said churches and to conserve them alike in chalices and ecclesiastical ornaments as in other necessaries and to support their burdens, inasmuch as fit portions have been assigned for the purpose; and that although the late Ingram Lindesay, perpetual vicar of the monastery's annexed church of Bothelny, in the diocese of Aberdeen, was condemned by a definitive sentence, which became a res judicata, delivered by the late Simon de Va[l]le, a papal chaplain and auditor, in virtue of a commission by Eugenius IV, to bear all such burdens of the said church of Bothelny, etc., nevertheless both the present vicar of Bothelny and a number of other perpetual vicars of certain other of the said monastery's annexed parish churches in the said diocese of Aberdeen and a number of other cities and dioceses, unjustly neglecting to support the burden of maintenance and other burdens incumbent on the said churches, relying also, some of them, on the support of the bishop of Aberdeen and other ordinaries, (fn. 16) refuse to repair the said united churches in their buildings, roofs, chalices and other ornaments, and endeavour to delegate the said burdens to the said abbot and convent against the said res judicata and ordinances (sic), or will, it is feared, do so in future. The pope therefore orders the above three to summon the said vicars and others concerned, and if they find the foregoing to be true, to grant to the abbot and his successors and to their deputies, faculty to compel the said vicars present and future, under pain of excommunication etc., to maintain and conserve the said parish churches in their said roofs, buildings, books, chalices and other ecclesiastical ornaments and otherwise, pay the episcopal dues, bear the other wonted burdens of the said churches, and also to compel detainers of the goods of the monastery, etc., invoking, if necessary, the aid of the secular arm. Votis personarum quarumlibet. (G. de Piccolominibus.) | Gratis de mandato domini nostri pape. A. de Urbino. A. Oriens. [In the margin. Januarii. 1½ pp. See the preceding mandate and confirmation.]

To the bishop of Cloyne (Clonen.). Mandate, at the recent petition of William Ysyichayn, perpetual vicar of Cacasteltunmageuel (rectius Casteltunmageuel) (fn. 18) in the said bishop's diocese (containing that the fruits etc. of the said vicarage, not exceeding 4 marks sterling a year, are too slight for his maintenance etc.) to unite thereto for his lifetime, or as long as he is vicar thereof, the perpetual vicarages of Soboltre and Roskayn in the said diocese, value not exceeding 2 marks sterling, which are so near the above church that they can be served by one man, and which have been so long void, by the death of Donatus Ymyrrisey and Cornelius Ysychayn respectively, that by the Lateran statutes their collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, although Thady Ocemmhyn (fn. 19) and Dermit Ogarnan, clerks of the said diocese, who are to be summoned [and removed], have wrongfully detained possession, the former of Soboltre for more than three years, and the latter of Roskayn for more than a year but less than two years, without any title or tittle of right. William, who was lately dispensed on account of illegitimacy as the son of a clerk and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, is to be dispensed, on account of the said defect, to receive and retain for life the said vicarages. Ex iniuncto nobis. (G. de Piccolominibus. | xxxx. A. de Urbino. T. de Castello.) [In the margin: Februarii, Jo. Horn, O. Principis. 1¾ pp.]

(f. 270.)
To Thomas, bishop of London. Annulment etc. as below. The pope was lately informed by Anthony de Eugubio, procurator-fiscal of the pope and the papal Camera that Henry cardinal priest of St. Eusebius's, commonly called the cardinal of England, in the time of Martin V, and at the instance of that pope, hired, with the moneys collected and levied by him in virtue of certain indulgences granted by the said pope in England, a number of archers and menat-arms in England for the purpose of fighting against the Bohemians and Hussites; that by order of Henry then king of England (after having received from that king fit sureties in regard to the recovery of the said sums, belonging to the Roman church and laid out on the said archers or mercenaries) he caused the said archers and men-at-arms to fight, not for the intended purpose, but against the French, and that he duly recovered from the said king the said sums, amounting to 7,023l. 6s. 8d. sterling [cf. below, Reg. Vat. DXII, f. 161]; and that, the said cardinal having died without making satisfaction to the said Camera for the said recovered moneys, his goods and the said sums came into the hands, first of the late John cardinal priest of St. Balbina's, commonly called the cardinal of York, and upon his death into the hands of the above bishop of London, the said cardinal Henry's executor. The pope therefore, at the instance of the said procurator, gave commission and mandate to Master James de Mucciarellis, a papal chaplain and auditor of causes of the said Camera, to admonish the said bishop to pay and restore the said sum to the heirs of the late James de Salviatis and his associates, merchants of Florence, dwelling in the city of London, in the name and on behalf of Ambrose de Spanochiis, banker (depositarii) of the pope and the said Camera, within a certain term appointed by the said auditor, under pain of sentence of excommunication and 50,000 gold ducats to be paid to the said Camera, etc. The recent petition of the said bishop contained that the said auditor James, after he had examined a number of couriers (cursores), and after they had deposed that access to England was not safe, caused the aforesaid bishop, (fn. 21) [by edict] affixed on the doors of the churches of St. Donatianus, Bruges and Ste. Pharailde, Ghent (sancte Pharael[d]is Gandavii) in the diocese of Tournay, and St. Peter's, Rome, etc., to be admonished and cited to pay and restore the said money to the said heirs within a fortnight after the affixing of the said edict, and upon the lapse of the said fortnight and more declared, at the instance of the said procurator, the aforesaid bishop Thomas (fn. 22) to have fallen under the pains of excommunication and 50,000 ducats, and to be avoided by the faithful, and condemned him in the costs in the cause before him. The said petition adding that the bishop had not knowledge of the said monition affixed abroad, as above, in time to send his defence to the Roman court etc., and that consequently he ought not to have been proceeded against as contumacious, that the said moneys never came into his hands, and that he is not bound to restore them, and that he is ready to stand his trial before any judge appointed by the pope etc., the pope at his petition and that of Edward king of England hereby calls up to himself all causes pending before the said auditor and extinguishes the suit, annuls the said commission, monition, citation, declaration etc. and all their consequences, and decrees and declares that the bishop ought not to be deemed to have been or to be bound by the said sentence of excommunication etc., or to have fallen under or incurred the same. Justis personarum quarumlibet. (G. de Piccolominibus, under which is Senen. | lx. A. de Urbino. Jo. de Veneriis.) [In the margin:Januarii, M. Amici. 3⅓ pp. See Vol. VII of the present Calendar, pp. 30, 32, 35–39.]

At the petition of the said Elizabeth, who alleges that processes in virtue of these presents cannot be published to him on account of his power, for the commission to upright men in those parts of the cause which she intends to bring against him, the pope hereby orders the above three to summon the said John and others concerned, and if they find the foregoing to be true, after first monishing him, to compel him by ecclesiastical censure, even extending to interdict against his lands and the churches and persons thereof, ecclesiastical and secular, without appeal, to put away the said adultress, receive Elizabeth his wife, and treat her with marital affection, invoking, if necessary, the aid of the secular arm; with faculty, if they find that the presence of the said John and others concerned is not safely accessible for the serving of monitions and citations, to make such monitions and citations by public edicts in public places near those parts, which monitions and citations shall be binding upon those monished and cited as if served upon them in person.

Religionis etc. (G. de Piccolominibus. | vi. A. de Urbino. Jo. de Camerino pro P. Chiarri. A. Oriens.) [In the margin: Januarii, M. Amici, N. Tungen. 1 p. See above, pp. 521 and 571.]
Ibid.
(f. 344d.)
To Thomas Birchold, rector of St. Dunstan's, Monks Risburgh (de Risburgh Monachorum), in the diocese of Lincoln, bachelor in decrees. Dispensation to receive and retain for life with the said church, which is of the immediate jurisdiction of the church of Canterbury, and whose value does not exceed 40l. sterling [any one other benefice], or, if he resign the said church, any two other benefices, with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if parish churches or their perpetual vicarages, and the yearly value thereof exceed 200 gold florins of the Camera, or dignities etc., even major or principal dignities, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, and hold instead two other incompatible benefices, provided that the fruits etc. of one or other (alterius) of the said parish churches do not exceed yearly 100 [gold] florins [of the Camera]. Litterarum etc. (G. de Piccolominibus. | l. A. de Urbino. Jo. de Camerino pro P. Chiarri. G. de Porris.) [In the margin:Januarii, M. Amici, N. Tungen. 2 pp. —.]
Ibid.
(f. 346d.)
To Simon Tawere, rector of Hanburghet (sic) in the diocese of Lincoln, bachelor in decrees. A like dispensation, mutatis mutandis (e.g. the value of the said church does not exceed 40 marks sterling). Litterarum etc. (G. de Piccolominibus. | l. A. de Urbino. P. de Bonitate pro computatore, tax(a) mut(ata). A. Oriens.) [In the margin:Januarii, M. Amici, N. Tungen. 2 p—. The tax was thus apparently originally fixed in the chancery of January and afterwards altered, hence the two sets of subscriptions.]
1464.
18 Kal. May.
(14 April.)
Petriolo in the diocese of Siena.
(f. 362.)
To Robert Turpyn, rector of Claxby by Normanby in the diocese of Lincoln.

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern red leather label, with: ‘Pii ii. Secret. Lib. xiv. T. xliv.,’ and on the bottom edge of the volume the usual contemporary description: ‘ii. Anni vi. Liber xiiii. Pii.’ There is a parchment flyleaf consisting of part of a notarial instrument, the text of which is very much erased and for the most part illegible, apparently recording a sale of property in Italy. There are no Rubricelle, and the text comprises ff. i. to ccccxxvr., at the end of which is the usual ‘Gaspar Blondus.’
2 On f. 17d. is the usual briefly registered ‘Littera passus pro Johanne Lochner usque ad numerum quinque,’ dated at Petriolo in the diocese of Siena, 1464, Non. April, anno 6, again without any information as to his destination etc. On ff. 23r. 25r. is the yearly Bulla ‘dici Jovis Sancte,’ dated at Siena, 1464, 4 Kal. April, anno 6, with mention of Sigismund duke of Austria and others by name, the ‘Wiclefiste’ etc.
3 quoddam hospitale in (rectius cum) capella …. de novo fundaveritillaque ampliare ac etiam doctare (uncancelled) domino coadiuvante doctare (sic) proponat.
4 formato,’ added in the margin.
5 On f. 80, under the date of Siena, 1464, Non. May, anno 6, is a dispensation to Paul Petri of Mildeburgh, a Friar Preacher, to hold any benefice with cure, even if a parish church etc. A mention of Ricard cardinal priest of St. Eusebius's [who was bishop of Coutances], and the omission of the clause ‘notwithstanding the constitutions of Otto and Ottobon, sometime legates in England,’ show that he is not English. The place is perhaps Mildenberg, near Potsdam.
6 qui ut asseris presbyter et habitum confratrum dicti hospitalis sancti Leonardi alias sancti Petri Eboracensis geris, non tamen alium quencunque professus existis.
7 unacum prefato hospitali in quo habitum geris retinere …., i.e. he is implicitly described as master of the hospital.
8 simplicia et non curata.
9 The text is apparently defective, as shown by the brackets: etiam si dignitatcs personatus administrationes vel officia in cathedralibus etiam metropolitanis [fuerint aut collegiatis ecclesiis, et dignitates huiusmodi in cathedralibus etiam metropolitanis] post pontificales majores vel in collegiatis ecclesiis principalesexistant. See also below, f. 362.
10 This name is obscured. It has occurred before on pp. 426 and 427 as ‘Bogart’ and ‘Bogard.’
11 For the incipit see note to Reg. Vat. DVIII, f. 19d., above. The usual name of the month in the margin is wanting.
12 Here the text is ‘scu pro reparacione dictarum ecclesiarum etiam pro minima expensa per ipsos fortassis neglecta’ and ‘tam ipsos quam parrochianos et ipsarum ecclesiarum decimatores firmarios et colonos laycos, eorum debitores, pro solucione decimarum et debitorum eis non facta excommunicabant et excommunicatos denunciari faciebant.’ Cf. above, Reg. Vat. CCCCLXXXV, f. 275d. and DIX, f. 123.
13 The year of the Incarnation, viz. ‘anno incarnationis etc. mcccclxiii,’ is added in the margin.
14 Here the text is ‘seu pro reparacione dictarum ecclesiarum etiam pro minima expensa per ipsos fortassis neglecta’ and ‘tam ipsos quam parrochianos et dictarum ecclesiarum decimatores firmarios et colonos laycos, eorum debitores, pro solucione decimarum et debitorum eis non facta excommunicabant et excommunicatos denunciari faciebant.’
15 The year is again added in the margin, viz. ‘anno etc. mcccclxiiio.’
16 innixi etiam quidam eorum favoribus venerabilis fratris nostri episcopi Alberdonensis (sic) seu aliorum ordinariorum ecclesiarum predictarum.
17 The ‘tertio’ is inserted in the margin.
18 Also written ‘de Casteltunmaguel.’
19 The ‘ce’ is uncertain.
20 The ‘decimo Kal. Februarii’ is inserted in the margin.
21 tc episcopum p(re)dictum …. valvis affixum. The ‘p(re)dictum’ is perhaps an error for p(er) edictum, or, more likely, the ‘p(er) edictum’ has dropped out of the text.
22 te Thomam episcopum antefatum. This confirms the second suggestion in the preceding note.
23 Here the ‘Decimo. Kal. Februarii’ is in the text.
24 Here also the amount is 7,023l. 6s. 8d.
25 Not clear, especially the third letter. The place is Lasswade, co Edinburgh.
26 Here again with the same defective text as f. 126d.
