Document 2/131/53 (Scotia Pontificia, no. 98)

Pope Alexander III writes to the bishops of Glasgow and Whithorn, noting that he has taken the abbot, brethren and monastery of Holm Cultram into his protection. If anyone disturbs their possessions in these diocese they should be anathematized by episcopal authority, and every effort made to preserve those goods for the abbot and the brothers. If anyone wishes to contend with Holm Cultram about these matters, it should be done judicially under the addressees’ examination, and the addressees should never allow the abbot and the monks to be dragged from an ecclesiastical court into a secular forum on issues about their possessions.
