Document 2/139/47 (Theiner, no. 39)

Pope Honorius III writes to the bishop of Dunkeld, Master James, papal chaplain, penitentiary and legate, and the abbot of Dunfermline, noting a complaint from the prior of St Andrews, who, being injured and oppressed by his bishop, appealed to the pope, sending H. of Dundee, his canon, to prosecute the appeal. The bishop obtained papal letters to the bishop of Dunblane and his fellow judges against the said H. alleging that he refused to render account of what he had received for the fabric of the church of St Andrews so that H. being absent on the prior’s business, was excommunicated as contumacious, and sentences were issued of suspension against the and chapter and of interdict against the church. He thus commands that these sentences are to be annulled, and they are to hear and describe the cause.
