Document 2/135/5 (Haddan and Stubbs, Councils, ii, I, 266)
Pope Clement III writes to Bishops Jocelin of Glasgow and Matthew of Aberdeen, Abbot Arnold of Melrose and Prior Bertram of Coldingham, reminding them that Pope Urban had commanded Hugh, formerly called bishop of St Andrews, under threat of excommunication, to present himself before the pope at an appointed time to reply concerning the controversy between him and Bishop John [of Dunkeld]. Aware of his actions and fearful of judgment, he refused to appear. On account of that and many other things bringing scandal to the church of God, Clement, with the consent of his brethren [i.e. the cardinals], declared Hugh permanently deposed from the episcopate of St Andrews and suspended from the use of the episcopal office until the apostolic see declares otherwise. His subjects are released from fealty to him. They should advise the members of the chapter of St Andrews on behalf of Clement to select a new bishop, and should strive to assure their acceptance of Bishop John. If all of them cannot be present throughout all that is to be done, the proceedings can be carried out by the others.
