To the rector and scholars of the college of Exeter in the place of Oxford. Grant as below. Innocent VII—on its being set forth to him by them that Walter, sometime bishop of Exeter, instituted the said college, then called the college of Exeter, or hall (aula) of Stapuldoichall (sic), and ordained, amongst other things, that thirteen scholars should reside, twelve to study in philosophy and one [who should be a priest] in theology or canon law, and that there might be more scholars if the means of the college increased, besides a rector; that each scholar should receive 10d. [a week] for his commons, and that over and above such commons, the rector should receive 20s., the said (sic) priest 20s., and each scholar 10s. a year; and that, after one of the said scholars should incept as bachelor of arts, he should lecture in the ordinary way for two whole years, the year of his inception not being counted, but that whether, in the third following year, he wished to continue to lecture or not, should be left to his choice; and that, within a fortnight after the end of the said third year, such scholar should leave the college and receive nothing further from it, a junior scholar being put in his place, the same to be observed in the case of every scholar as soon as he should be provided with patrimony or perpetual pension to a yearly value of 40s.; and that the said means had so increased that more scholars could be received—made for them a number of statutes and deputed executors. Their recent petition to the present pope contained that in the above clause of the said bishop's statutes to the effect that ‘the same should be observed in the case of every scholar as soon as he should be provided with patrimony or perpetual pension to a [yearly] value of 60s.,’ by an error ‘40s.’ was written instead of ‘60s.’ in the said letters of Innocent VII, on account of which the rector and scholars doubt whether they may not be reputed invalid. The pope therefore wills and grants that they shall be henceforth valid, and that the said executors may and shall proceed to execute them as though not ‘40s.’ but ‘60s.’ had been written. Sincere devocionis. [See above, p. 47.]

The pope hereby ordains that as long as the present rector presides over the said church, thus erected into a collegiate church, he shall be called, not rector, as hitherto, but warden or master; that he shall be able to have with him some chaplains, as he shall think expedient; that upon his death or resignation, the said chaplains shall be able to elect as warden or master one of themselves or another, and present him to the bishop, which election, provided that it be of a fit person and be otherwise canonical, the bishop shall admit and confirm without delay, namely within twenty days from the presentation; that if the bishop do not confirm, nor assign a just cause, at the end of the said period the said elect may and shall eo ipso be deemed true warden or master, and act as such, as though lawfully confirmed by the bishop; and that the bishop and archdeacon may, at and during each voidance of the wardenship, take the whole of its fruits etc., and divide them according to the said custom, provided that therefrom fit provision be made for a vicar, who shall act meanwhile as warden or master.

Exhortation and injunction to all faithful to be generous and to be ready to help in repairing the church of York—the fame of which stands out among the celebrated churches of the world; which from times most ancient has been adorned with many and large papal privileges; which, in accordance with its excellence and dignity, has been built in the form of a cross right splendidly and most sumptuously, with wondrous work and beauty, and has had in its midst a bell-tower lofty and delectable to see, to whose corners the aisles of the church seemed to cling (ac ipsa ecclesia juxta ejus excellenciam et dignitatem in sua structura quadrangulari valde splendide ac nimium sumptuose opere mirifico et decoro constructa fuerit, necnon in medio ipsius ecclesie campanile admodum emineus ac eciam opere mirabili et visui delectabile tune consistens, cujus angulis videbantur ipsius latera inherere), which tower, stricken of late by a horrible tempest, has fallen to the ground, a spectacle dreadful to the beholder, greatly deforming the church, so that the bells, cast at great labour and expense, and heretofore uninjured, have likewise fallen to the ground and been broken—the dean and chapter, who desire to restore and repair the church and bell tower and to place new bells, for which their means and those of the fabric are not sufficient; with relaxation, during ten years, of seven years and seven quarantines of enjoined penance to penitents each time that during eight days, in their own person or by others at their expense, they give manual aid or the equivalent in money or materials to the masters and workmen employed in the repairs. The pope allows (?) these present letters to be sent in the province of York by pardoners (questuarios) only, and if otherwise be done declares them without force (quas in provincia Eboracensi per questuarios tantum mitti consueuimus (? for consentimus), eas, si secus actum fuerit, carere viribus decernentes). Univ. Christifid. etc. Altitudo providencie.

To Robert Hunte, priest, of the diocese of London. Rehabilitation on account of the following. Formerly William Halle, rector, [now] of Leyndon, then of Neuton, in the dioceses of London and Norwich, being unable, through the hostility of the parishioners of Neuton, of the patronage of laymen, to reside without bodily peril, prayed Hunte, then rector of Leyndon, to bring about an amicable agreement between him and Joan countess of Hereford, of the diocese of London, patron of Neuton, who was wrongfully striving to exact from him a sum of money, promising to exchange with him Neuton, which is and was of greater value than Leyndon. Hunte simoniacally obtained the consent of the countess to the exchange, and he and Halle resigned their churches to William Milton, archdeacon of Bukyngham in Lincoln, deputed by Thomas, archbishop of Canterbury, as vicar-general of the void see of Norwich, who, having special power from Richard, bishop of London, carried out the exchange. Hunte is to resign Neuton. Sedes apostolica.

Such parish churches the pope hereby specially reserves for this turn to his own gift. Justis et honestis.

To John Prophete, canon of York. Grant, as below. Boniface IX [Cal. Lett. IV, p. 510] dispensed him—holding a canonry and prebend and the deanery, a major elective dignity with cure, of Hereford, canonries and prebends of Lincoln, St. Asaph, Aberguyli [Aberwyly in f. 216d], Ledebury and Tamworth, and the free chapel without cure of St. Tiriotus, in the dioceses of St. Davids, Hereford and Lichfield, value not exceeding 370 marks—to hold for three years two mutually incompatible benefices, even if one were an elective dignity with cure, major in a metropolitan or cathedral, or principal and unique in a collegiate church [and to resign them, as often as seemed good to him, for exchange or otherwise, within the said three years and hold instead [two] similar or dissimilar [incompatible] benefices, omitted here, but occurring below, f. 216d]. Pope Boniface also [Cal. Lett. IV, p. 354] dispensed him—holding the said deanery and chapel and canonries and prebends of Lincoln, St. Asaph, Aberguyly, Ledebury, Tamworth and St. Cross Crediton, and the parish church of Ryngwoed (sic) in the diocese of St. Davids, Hereford, Lichfield, Winchester and Exeter, value altogether not exceeding 300 marks—to hold such two benefices with cure for life and to resign them, for exchange or otherwise, as often as seemed good to him, and hold instead two other similar or dissimilar incompatible benefices. Afterwards, on his resignation of the said deanery and on the death of pope Boniface, Innocent VII made provision to him—holding the canonries and prebends of Langtoft in York, Netherbury in Salisbury, Leghton Busarde in Lincoln and Murton Magna in Hereford, a certain perpetual benefice called the portion or prebend of Overhall in Ledebury, and the said parish church, value altogether not exceeding 700 marks—of the deanery of York, previously reserved [see above, pp. 113 and 116]. Subsequently the present pope dispensed him—holding the [said] parish church, a canonry and prebend and the deanery, a major [elective] dignity with cure, of York, and canonries and prebends of Salisbury, Lincoln and Hereford, value altogether not exceeding 1,300 marks—to hold, likewise for life, such two incompatible benefices [as below, f. 216d]. His recent petition contained that in the said second letters of Boniface IX there was, without his knowledge, no mention made of his canonry and prebend of Moreton Magna in Hereford, nor of its value, which does not exceed 30 marks, nor of the true value of other benefices mentioned therein; and that in the present pope's said letters no mention was, by mistake, made of the said second letters [of Boniface IX]. The pope therefore grants that, notwithstanding the said omissions, the aforesaid letters and the proceedings arising out of the letters of Innocent VII shall henceforth hold good. Vite etc.
