Document 2/143/13 (Dunf. Reg., no. 278)

Pope Innocent IV writes to the bishop, dean and treasurer of Glasgow noting that he has indulged to the abbot and convent of Dunfermline that no papal delegate, sub-delegate, executor, conservator, or legate may promulgate against the abbey sentences of excommunication, suspension, or interdict without special papal mandate making mention of this indult. He commands that they not permit the abbey to be bothered with regard to this, compelling the molesters by ecclesiastical censure. If all of them cannot be present, then the bishop shall do it.
