12 Kal. Feb.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 92d.)
To Master Simon de Theramo, doctor of canon and civil law, papal nuncio and collector for the papal camera in England. Mandate as below. The pope has recently learned that some debtors of the camera in the parts where he is collector assert that in the General Council of Pisa Alexander V remitted sums due to the camera. In order that the collector and any other may see what was remitted, and what not, the pope, at the petition of Master John de Scribanis, procurator of the pope's treasury (fisci) and of the said camera, has caused to be inserted in these presents a copy, taken from the register of the letters of Alexander V, of that pope's motu proprio letters, Licet ad universalis, addressed to Francis, archbishop of Narbonne, papal chamberlain, and dated at Pisa, 7 Id. Aug. anno 1 [1409], whereby, mainly for the relief of the expenses caused by attendance at the said Council, he remitted all debts or arrears, incurred up to the day of his accession, in respect of common services, annates or first fruits, tenths, procurations or visitations, fruits medii temporis and spolia, and belonging, under any constitutions, customs, impositions or reservations of his predecessors or any others, to the said pope's person only; absolving the debtors from excommunication etc. incurred by delay in payment, and dispensing them on account of any irregularity contracted. To such payments of the said debts and arrears as had already been made up to the publication of the above letters the remission was not to apply, and the above chamberlain was ordered to cause the pope's remission, absolution and dispensation to be observed. The present pope hereby decrees that the present exemplification shall have the force of the original, and orders the above collector to exact from all liable, giving a receipt, Peter's pence and all other rights of the camera which he shall judge not to be comprised under the above remission, proceeding by ecclesiastical censure etc., as is customary in the case of debts of the camera, and invoking, if necessary, the aid of the secular arm. Prouisionis nostre. [3 pp.]
