Document 2/143/41 (Dryb. Lib., no. 276)

Pope Innocent IV writes to the bishop of Dunkeld, the abbot of Dunfermline, and the prior of St Andrews, noting that he has indulged to the abbot and convent of Dryburgh that they may not be compelled to receive anything concerning the provision of another with regard to pensions or other ecclesiastical benefices by the authority of the apostolic see or of his legates without making mention of this special mandate. He thus commands them not to permit the abbey to be troubled concerning this, compelling the molesters by ecclesiastical censure without appeal.
