Document 2/140/84 (C.A. Chrs., no. 43A)

Pope Gregory IX writes to the priors of St Andrews and Restenneth and the archdeacon of St Andrews about the complaint made by Malcolm, canon of Dunkeld, against the abbot and convent of Coupar Angus concerning teinds 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 If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth.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.
