Document 2/143/132 (Lind. Cart., no. 104)

Pope Innocent IV writes to the abbot of Dunfermline and the prior of May, noting that it was proposed in his presence that some clerics and laymen, professing to have a dispute against the abbot and convent of Lindores, presume to seize, hold in pledge and detain monks or converts and sometimes animals and other goods of their monastery, until they consider themselves to have received satisfaction, although they have no jurisdiction either ordinary or delegated by which they could do these things. Such action is not to be tolerated and no man may presume to avenge himself. He thus commands them to prevent the abbot and convent from being molested, restraining the offenders by ecclesiastical censure.
