Document 2/137/64 (Dunf. Reg., no. 211A)

Pope Innocent III writes to the abbot of Kelso and the priors of Kelso and Coldingham stating that Abbot P[atrick] and the convent of Dunfermline have shown him that the case between them and the Noble Man, Philip de Mowbray, called before the dean of Glasgow and his fellow judges, concerning the church of Inverkeithing (FIF), has been overturned by his authority, and the judges wrongly proceeded to promulgate a sentence against them, after they appealed to Rome. Therefore, the pope commands them to be aware of the appeal and undertake to establish or diminish the sentence according to what is lawful. If it shall be aggravated by law, they should hear the case [again], and terminate it canonically without appeal, making what is decreed be observed firmly. If all of them cannot be present, then two of them shall do it.
