To the bishop of Silves (Siluen.), and the chancellor and the treasurer of Ardfert. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Hobertus Dondini, clerk, of the diocese of Ardfert, contained that after he had been by John Pihyk, (fn. 6) then appointed [collector] of fruits etc. due to the papal camera in the province of Ireland, and having, as he alleged, special power for the purpose, dispensed by papal authority, on account of illegitimacy as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, he caught a thief one night in his house, delivered him to the burgesses and to the provost of the town of Ardfert, as the true bailiff and officer of the bishop of Ardfert, to whom the jurisdiction of the said town belongs, but not with the intention that the thief should be put to death, and that the said burgesses and officer handed over the thief to a certain temporal lord, their comburgess, as their chief, to whom belonged the punishment of the thief, and who, in accordance with the law etc. of the said town, put him to death (fn. 7) ; that afterwards, upon the voidance of the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Ryndbeara in the said diocese because Maurice Fyssemoris, having obtained it by canonical collation, held possession for more than a year without having himself ordained priest and without papal dispensation, John bishop of Ardfert made collation and provision of it to him by his ordinary authority, under pretext of which he took possession, and has held possession for more than three years but less than four, as he does at present, and that he has moreover had himself promoted to all holy orders and ministered therein for more than the said three years. The said collation and provision being therefore without force, and the vicarage still void as above, the pope orders the above three to absolve Hobertus, who alleges that he was not to blame otherwise than as above for the death of the said thief, for which he grieves from his heart, from the said excesses, enjoining penance, dispense him on account of any irregularity contracted, and dispense him to minister in his orders, even in the office of the altar, and rehabilitate him, and in the event of their so doing, to collate and assign to him the said vicarage, value not exceeding 8 marks sterling. The pope hereby dispenses him to receive and retain it, and to resign it, simply or for exchange, once only, notwithstanding the said defect of birth etc., but before they proceed to execute these presents he is to resign it to them. Solet apostolice sedis. (Her. and A. de Cortesiis. | Her.Gratis pro deo. Quartodecimo Kal. Maii Anno Sexto. de Monasterio pro magistris Registri.) [4 pp.]

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Pio ii. 1463. Anno 6. Lib. i,’ and on the inside of the cover is Mgr. Wenzel's ‘To. 19 dellanno v. nella rubricella.’ A contemporary flyleaf has, in different contemporary hands, the description: ‘Secundus de diversis formis anno vio . domini nostri domini Pii pape ii,’ the order: ‘R(ecipe) Jo., P. (i.e.P. de Varris),’ the answering: ‘Rubricatus est, and the quasi-contemporary ‘Quesit(us).’ A like contemporary description occurs, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume. There are i.–ccciii. ff. of text. F. i. is headed ‘de diversis anno vio .’
2 On ff. 85r–86r is a grant to a canon of Compostela, dated at Siena 1463[–4] 13 Kal. April (20 March) anno 6. After the date is the beginning of a concurrent mandate: ‘Simili modo dilecto filio abbati monasterii beate Marie de Asdara Akaden. dioc. salutem etc.’ This is naturally cancelled by H[ugolinu]s.

6 The surname has been corrected, and is therefore not quite clear.
