To the bishop of Sisteron (Sistaricen.). Mandate as below. The recent petition of William abbot of the Augustinian monastery of St. John the Evangelist, Tuam, contained that, after Martin V and Eugenius IV's renewal of the sentences etc. promulgated by their predecessors against simoniacs, and their reservation to themselves and their successors of absolution therefrom, upon a dispute arising between the said William and Donald Onaray, sometime abbot of the said monastery, about the rule and administration thereof, they, with the consent of Donatus archbishop of Tuam, promised by oath to abide by the decision of certain arbitrators; that the said arbitrators adjudged that the right in the said monastery or in its rule and administration belonged to William, and imposed perpetual silence on Donald, and assigned, with William's permission, the greater part of the fruits etc. and a parcel of lands or possessions of the monastery yearly to Donald, which assignment William promised by oath to observe; that William obtained peaceable possession of the rule and administration, and still exercises them, taking therefrom the fruits, though few. The said petition adding that William doubts whether the said agreement was lawful, and fears to have incurred the said sentences etc., the pope hereby orders the above bishop to absolve him from the stain of simony and the said sentences etc., if any incurred, enjoining penance, and to dispense him on account of irregularity, if any, contracted when under the said sentences by celebrating masses and other divine offices, not in contempt of the Keys.

Prid. Id.— (fn. 14)
Siena.
(f. 310d.)
To the abbot of Holy Trinity, Tuam. Mandate as below. The recent petition of David Breanach, priest, of the diocese of Tuam, contained that lately, on the voidance of the perpetual vicarage of Fuoranmor in the diocese of Annaghdown, of the patronage of laymen, by the resignation of John Macgillavanach to Donatus archbishop of Tuam, the church of Annaghdown being united to that of Tuam, the patrons presented David to the said archbishop, who instituted him, and that in virtue of the presentation and institution he obtained possession and has held it for more than three years, but now doubts whether they hold good, because some assert that the vicarage became void, not by the said resignation, but because the said John, when holding the rectory of the parish church of Ardrathayn in the diocese of Kilmacduagh (Duacen.), which has cure, obtained the vicarage by canonical collation and held it together with the rectory without any papal dispensation against ‘Execrabilis,' and that it was so long void that by the Lateran statutes its collation had lapsed to the apostolic see. The pope therefore orders the above abbot to collate and assign to David, if found fit, the said vicarage, value not exceeding 4 marks sterling, whether it be void as stated, or by the resignation of Maurice Ymulbreanaynd or by the deprivation of Thady Ymukathe, or in any other way. Dignum arbitramur. (P. and A. de Cortesiis. | P. xxii. Quinto Id. Septembris Anno Tercio. de Varris.) [3 pp.]

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Latin: ‘1460. An. iii. (corrected by erasure to ii.) Pius ii.’ The volume has lost its original flyleaf, as well as ff. i.–viii. On the bottom edge of the volume, however, is the usual contemporary description: ‘Primus de regularibus et de exhibitis anno secundo domini Pius ii. secundi.’ There are ix.‐cccxii. ff. of text.
2 As mentioned in the preceding note, f. viii, on which the present letter began, has disappeared, and with it, therefore, the address and the beginning of the following reservation. The address is therefore supplied with the help of the concurrent mandate.
3 super terris firmis et annuis (the preceding four words are substituted in the margin by P. [de Varris] for the ‘fructibus’ of the text, which is cancelled and over-written P[etru]s) redditibus de Donybyrsill Bothethlak cum molendino et decimis garbalibus et minutis earundem unacum decimis garbalibus ville de Luthald ad dictum monasterium spectantibus.
4 The usual marginal name at the beginning of the letter is gone, as explained in the preceding note but one.
5 ac in eodem monasterio dissollute (sic) vagando minime residerenon expavit.
6 quasi pro maiori parte in tercio et quarto consanguinitatis gradibus se attinentes.
7 aliorum non attinentium fratrum.

10 predictis priori et consang[u]ineis ac attenentibus (sic) predictis.
11 absque Cormaci et aliorum in conventu huiusmodi existentium et non attinentium predictorum.
