Document 2/139/53 (Dunf. Reg., no. 217B)

Pope Honorius III writes to the abbots of Kelso and Dryburgh and the prior of Coldingham noting that he has received the complaint by the abbot and convent of Dunfermline between them and the abbot of Coupar Angus concerning the church of Bendochy (PER) and other things, as called before the dean of Forfar and his fellow judges. The defenders claim that the judges had refused to render their acta to writing, as required by the statutes of the General Council, [for which] they appealed for a papal audience. He commands them, if this is true, to proceed with reason, otherwise they may remit the parties to the examination of the former judges, appealing to the condemned lawful expenses. If all of them cannot be present, let two of them do it.
