To the bishop of Worcester. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of the Augustinian prior and convent of Stodeley in the diocese of Worcester set forth that Boniface IX—at their petition to the effect that the late William de Cantilupo gave them the patronage and glebe of the parish church of Aston Cauntelow in the said diocese; that bishop Walter made the appropriation; that the Augustinian prior and convent of Maxstoke in the diocese of Lichfield procured from the late William Clynton, donsel, of the latter diocese, falsely pretending him to be the patron, a grant of the said patronage, obtained surreptitious confirmation by papal authority and occupied the church, but not the glebe, for a certain time, after which, whilst litigation was proceeding, Stodeley recovered and was still holding possession —ordered the archdeacon of Gloucester and two other colleagues [i.e. the abbots of Evesham and Gloucester, as mentioned in Reg. Lat. LXXXV, f. 244d, Cal. Lett. V, p. 359, which gives the petition to Boniface IX and his mandate, as here, with slight differences of spelling] to confirm the donation and appropriation to Stodeley and to proceed as was otherwise contained in the letters of pope Boniface [i.e. to annul the confirmation made by his predecessors to Maxstoke and to appropriate anew, ad cautelam, the said church to Stodeley]. The said recent petition to the present pope added that after the said archdeacon, acting alone, had taken some proceedings, the prior and convent of Maxstoke caused him and his colleagues to be prohibited by royal writs from proceeding any further, despoiled the prior and convent of Stodeley by force of arms of their possession of the said church, and, by other royal writs, caused the prior and a number of the canons of Stodeley to be brought before secular judges and detained until under heavy pains they promised not to proceed with the cause without the realm; that thereafter the prior and convent of Maxstoke obtained the commission of the said cause to divers papal auditors and gained two pretended definitive sentences against the prior and convent of Stodeley and their condemnation in fruits and costs, the second of which sentences, not being challenged, became res judicata, and from the first of which appeal was made by the person whom the abbot and convent of Stodeley had previously constituted their proctor, they however being in ignorance of all these proceedings; that for execution of the said sentences and recovery of the said fruits and costs the abbot and convent of Maxstoke impetrated papal letters addressed to the archbishop of Canterbury and two colleagues [not named, see below, Reg. CLVI, f. 160d], and that the archbishop, proceeding alone, monished the prior and convent of Stodeley by processes containing sentences of excommunication, suspension and interdict to restore and make satisfaction for the said fruits, from which monition and processes they, as soon as they heard of them, appealed to the apostolic see, but, from fear of the aforesaid penalties, failed to prosecute their appeal within the lawful time; that afterwards Robert Oxston, canon of Lichfield, as commissary of the said archbishop, declared that the abbot and convent of Stodeley and their church lay under the said sentences of excommunication etc.; that the said definitive sentences had been delivered under pretext of certain false instruments, and that the right and ownership of Stodeley with regard to the said church could be made evident. The pope therefore orders the above bishop to summon the prior and convent of Maxstoke, to absolve from the said sentences the prior and convent of Stodeley, to admit the latter to appeal de novo against the said second definitive sentence, to hear it and to decide the suit without appeal, causing by ecclesiastical censure his decision to be observed.Humilibus supplicum votis.

Religionis zelus, etc.
