Document 2/140/3 (Glas. Reg., no. 147)

Pope Gregory IX writes to the bishop of Dunkeld, the prior of Coldingham and the dean of Lothian, noting that he has received a complaint from H[ugh], archdeacon of Glasgow, against the bishop of Glasgow and certain other clerics and laymen of the Glasgow diocese concerning the liberties and immunities of the archdeacon, rents and other things. He thus commands them to call together the parties, hear the case, and terminate it without appeal, causing what is decreed to be observed firmly by ecclesiastical censure. If the witnesses [named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth.] If all of them [cannot take part in carrying this out, let two of them do it.]
