Document 2/143/102 (Newb. Reg., no. 235 )

Pope Innocent [IV] writes to the abbot, co-abbots and convents of the entire Cistercian order, noting that it was indulged to them by the apostolic see the privilege that no bishop or other persona should compel them to go to synods or public courts nor should they presume to promulgate sentences of excommunication, suspension or interdict against them, their monasteries or their people; and if this should happen it would be declared null and void. The pope thus prohibits this from happening according to the indulgence which they have already received.
