Document 2/137/59 (Robertson, Concilia Scotiae, ii, 232)
Pope Innocent III writes to the bishop of St Andrews, the abbot of Arbroath, Thomas, prior of St Andrews, Ranulf, archdeacon of St Andrews, and Master [Laurence], official of St Andrews, stating that when an act is simultaneously related to possession and petition, both should be ended by a single sentence. But although in the pronouncement possession should have the prior place, in execution property ought to take precedence.
