Document 2/147/22 (Theiner, no. 261)

Pope Gregory X commands the bishops of St Andrews and Aberdeen, to examine the life and morals of Master Robert of Fyvie, archdeacon of Ross, elected by the dean and chapter to that see, void by the death of Matthew, bishop of Ross, the election having been presented to the pope by canons Duncan and Master William, and examined by P[eter], bishop of Tusculum , William, cardinal-priest of S. Marco, and Uberto, cardinal-deacon of S. Eustace, and found to be canonical; but as there is not sufficient evidence of the fitness of the bishop-elect, the pope issues this mandate. If the bishops find that he is a fit person, they are to establish the election and, with another bishop, consecrate him, receiving his oath of fealty to the pope. If not, they are to cause another election to be made.
