The pope therefore orders the above three to aggravate such processes as often as shall be expedient. Exhibita nobis.

SS. Apostoli, Rome.
(f. 255.)
To the bishop of Aiacen., (fn. 2) dwelling in the Roman court. Mandate as below. The recent petition of John Percy, subdean of Lincoln, bachelor of canon law, contained that one day he and three other English notables were assembled in a house in Rome (infra Urbem) for the purpose of settling a quarrel between two Englishmen and an Irishman, when they were assailed by three other Irishmen, whom they did not know, one of whom, a subdeacon, insultingly declared that he meant to avenge the arrest of a compatriot of his, and although warned to get out of the house, refused, rushed at John's servant and struck him with his fist. When, at the blow, the servant had begun to draw the knife which he was wearing at his side, John (who was then in priest's orders, and under a papal dispensation was holding together, as he still does, the subdeanery of Lincoln, which is a non-major dignity with cure, and the parish church of Querygtun in the diocese of Lincoln, and also the free chapel without cure of Blastun in the said diocese) fearing that his servant was in danger of death, came to his rescue and closed with the subdeacon (subdiaconumulnis complectens). Thereupon another Irishman, coming to the subdeacon's help, got John by the neck (collo dicti Johannis adherente) who, having the subdeacon in front and the said other Irishman behind him, saw no better way of saving himself than to wound the subdeacon on the shoulders (humeris), and to throw the other Irishman on the ground. So, without the least intention of killing the subdeacon, he wounded him on the shoulders with a small bread knife, whereupon the subdeacon and the other Irishman went away. On the fifth day after this the subdeacon died, for which John says that he is not otherwise guilty. The pope therefore orders the above bishop to absolve John from excommunication incurred, enjoining a salutary penance, rehabilitate him, and dispense him to minister in all holy orders as before, and to receive any benefices, of any number and kind, with or without cure, compatible with one another and with the said subdeanery and church, and to hold together such benefices and the said chapel, value not exceeding 3s. 4d. of English money, and, for as long as the aforesaid dispensation holds good, the said subdeanery and church, value not exceeding 50 and 8 marks sterling respectively. Sedes apostolica, pia mater.

(f. 257.)
To the archbishop of York. Mandate as below. The recent petition of Robert Semer, rector of the altar of St. Michael in the church of York, contained that the late Walter, archbishop of York, ordained with consent of the chapter that a priest, deputed by the chapter, should have under him, chosen by himself, two priests to celebrate divine offices perpetually at the said altar with the full ritual of the office for the dead (cum plenis exequiis mortuorum), so that after the celebration of a first mass early in the morning (prima matutino tempore celebrata two other masses should be said at convenient hours, all three being present at each of the said masses, as also at processions on double feasts and at matins in the choir, unless there were a canonical hindrance. [Cf. Raine. Hist. of the Church of York, III, pp. 153–154.] At the said Robert's petition—stating that the said burdens are too heavy to be borne by himself and the said other priests, and praying the pope to modify the said ordinance in such wise that he and the priests chosen by him may, not only at the said altar, but in any other fit place, celebrate the said divine offices with the full ritual as above (cum plenis exequiis supradictis), and may not be compelled to be present at each of the said masses—the pope. orders the archbishop to inform himself, and if he find the above to be true, to ordain as he shall think expedient.
