Footnotes

1

On the back of the volume is the usual modern label: Paul. II. In for.paup., and on the surviving front half of the original sheepskin binding is the title: Reg. bullarum in forma pauperum sanctissimi domini nostri Pauli pape secundi, more briefly repeated on the bottom edge of the volume, as usual, There are ff. 1–204 of text, and no rubricelle, The volume consists almost entirely of mandates, nearly always registered in a very abbreviated form, to make provision to poor priests or clerks of a secular benefice with or without cure, of stated value, in the gift of stated patrons. Above each bull is indicated the result of the examination to which each petitioner has been subjected, and the order which is assigned to him in the expectative ‘queue,’ e.g. Bene per omnia, et sit primus (or secundus, tercius, etc.); Bene legit, competenter construit et cantat, et sit primus; Bene legit, bene cantat, competenter construit, [et] sit septimus; Bene legit, mediocriter construit et cantat, [et] sit primus; Bene legit et cantat, et debiliter construit, [et] sit primus; Competenter per omnia, et sit tercius; Bene legit, bene cantat et nichil construit, [et] sit primus; Bene legit, bene cantat, non construit, [et] sit quintus; Bene legit et construit, de cantu nichil scit, [et] sit primus.Cf. also the headings printed in the text above. It thus appears that the place in the ‘queue’ did not depend on the result of the examination.

In the top margin of f. 185d. is the following: Die lune sexta mensis Marcii anno domini moccccolxix, pontificatus sanctissimi domini nostri domini Pauli pape secundi anno quinto, dominus A (lvarus Alfonsi) episcopus Elboren., Cancellarie Apostolice Regens, deputavit examinatorem super graciis in communi forma pauperum in regno Anglie concedendis dominum Iacobum Golwell, prothonotarium apostolicum, etc.

2 As only very rarely added, e.g. on ff. 123r. and 127r.
3 If it were not for the name ‘David Swintun,’ it might be supposed from the context that ‘Brechinen.’ here and in the margin is an error for ‘Bremen.’
