(f. 8r.)
To the abbot of Kelso (de Calco) in the diocese of St. Andrews. Mandate, motu proprio, to receive Andrew Luderdel, priest, of the diocese of G[l]asgow, as a canon of St. Mary's, Dribu[r]gh, O.

(f. 8v.)
To Andrew Luderdel, priest, of the diocese of Glasgow, M.A. Grant and provision, as below. The pope lately, on the voidance of the monastery of St. Mary, Dribu[r]gh, O. Praem., in the diocese of St. Andrews, by the death of abbot Walter extra R.c., made provision thereof to the late John Crafort, a canon of the same. And upon a dispute arising between the said John and the late Hugh Douglas, a canon of the same monastery, about its rule and administration, the former alleging that provision had been made to him by the pope, and that the latter had unjustly opposed and was opposing the same, etc., and had intruded himself, and was unlawfully detaining possession, and the latter alleging that the said monastery lawfully belonged to him, the pope, at the instance of the former, committed the cause, although not by its nature lawfully devolved to the Roman court, to John bishop of Nocera, residing in the said court and holding the place of a papal auditor, who, proceeding in possessorio, promulgated a sentence in favour of the said John and against the said Hugh, the latter's appeal from which the pope committed to Master Anthony de Grassis, a papal chaplain and auditor, after divers proceedings by whom, short of a conclusion, the said John died at the apostolic see, whereupon the pope called up the cause to himself, extinguished the suit, and made provision to the said Hugh. Subsequently, before the pope's letters had been drawn up, the said Hugh also died at the said see, and, the said monastery being therefore void, the pope has this day ordered the abovenamed Andrew to be received, etc., as in the preceding. The pope now grants to him the said monastery (reserved under his late reservation of the provisions of all churches and monasteries then void and to be void at the said see), in commendam for three months from the date of these presents, and decrees that as soon as he has been received as a canon, taken the habit and made his profession, provision of the said monastery is to be made to him. The pope's will is that during such commenda he may dispose of the fruits etc., as freely as true abbots have been able to do, and that if after the lapse of the said three months he has not been received as a canon and taken the habit and made his profession, these presents and the commenda and provision contained therein shall be null and void. Summi dispositione rectoris.

To William Bouquil, abbot of Arbubroth [sic], (fn. 1) O.S.B., in the diocese of St. Andrews. Provision, as below. Lately, on the voidance of the said monastery by the death of abbot George extraR.c., previously to which the pope had specially reserved the provision thereof to his gift, the convent (ignorant, as is believed, of the said reservation), elected de facto the above William, who (likewise ignorant) consented to the election, and who, upon learning the said reservation, has caused the matter of the said election to be set forth to the pope in consistory. The said election, etc., being therefore null and void, the pope hereby makes to the said William, a monk of the said monastery, professed of the said order, and in priest's orders, and of lawful age, provision of the said monastery. Inter solicitudines varias.

Footnotes

1 On an end-paper at the beginning of the volume: An. 11 [sic]. to. 15.
2 ‘Arbirbroch’ in the concurrent letters.
3 Here again ‘Arbubroth.’
4 Volumus autem quod idem antistes qui tibi prefatum munus impendet, postquam tibi illud impenderit, a te. … fidelitatis debite solitum recipiat iuramentum iuxta formam quam sub bulla nostra mittimus introclusam, ac formam iuramenti quod te prestare contigerit nobis de verbo ad verbum per eius patentes litteras suo sigillo signatas per proprium nuntium quamtotius destinare procuret (corrected from procures).
5 On f. 34r. is the bull of provision dated 1482, 3 Kal. Sept. anno 12 (30 Aug.) of James Valaresso, priest, of Venice, of noble birth, to the see of Capodistria (Justinopolitan.), void by the death of bishop Simon (in Eubel, ad loc., from ‘Obligationes’ only, and with ‘Valeresso’). See above, pp. 513, 515n., 568n., 582n.
6 Here Volumus autem quod idem antistes qui munus prefatum tibi impendet, postquam illud tibi impenderitintroclusam (as in the last note but one), ac formam iuramenti quod te presture contigerit nobis de verbo ad verbum per tuas (cf. ibid.) patentes litteras tuo (cf. ibid.) sigillo signatas per proprium nuntium quantotius destinare procures (cf. ibid.).
7 Again with the spelling ‘Varis.’
8 Preterea volumus quod formam huiusmodi a te tunc prestiti iuramenti nobis de verbo ad verbum per tuas patentes litteras tuo sigillo signatas per proprium nuntium quantotius destinare procures.
9 Such a close juxtaposition of a bachelor of civil law (in legibus) and a bachelor of canon law (in decretis) has not occurred before.
10 What is represented above by an ‘e’ between the ‘r’ and the ‘f’ is doubtful.
11 The letters after the ‘l’ are doubtful. ‘Calceto’ is perhaps meant.
12 quoddam perpetuum simplex beneficium ecclesiasticum loci de Ymlefada Akadensis diocesis prebenda nuncupatum.
