Document 2/140/76 (Theiner, no. 85)

Pope Gregory IX commands the bishops of Glasgow, Dunblane, and Brechin, on the intimation of the dean and chapter of Dunkeld, to enquire into the postulation of canon Geoffrey as bishop, whose dispensation on account of illegitimacy does not extend to a bishopric. If they find that the postulation is canonical, they are to extend the dispensation, and cause due obedience and reverence to be paid to him, and to consecrate him, afterwards receiving his oath of fealty according to the form sent under the pope’s bull, and sending the pope his oath under their seal. Otherwise they are to cause a canonical election to be made.
