Document 2/137/60 (St A. Lib., 370)

Pope Innocent III writes to the abbots of Melrose and Dryburgh, and the archdeacon of Glasgow, stating that he has received a complaint from the bishop of St Andrews against the céli De and certain others in the diocese of Aberdeen within the villa of Monymusk concerning construction at their church. Therefore, the pope commands by their discretion, by apostolic letter, to call the parties together, to establish what is canonical, without appeal, causing what is decreed to be observed firmly by ecclesiastical censure; if the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of hatred or fear, by the same censure, the judges shall compel them, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth. If all of them cannot carry this out, then two of them shall do it
