Document 2/147/15 (Glas. Reg., no. 215 )

Pope Gregory X writes to the bishops of Dunblane and Argyll noting the petition of the dean and chapter of Glasgow that William, of good memory, bishop of Glasgow, being attentive to the liberties and customs of the church of Salisbury, that they may be preserved in the church of Glasgow, had established the said liberties and customs with the assent of the late dean and chapter of Glasgow, both concerning the enforcement of offices obtained by personas and dignities and celebrating divine office in that place, and towards others, that those liberties and customs might be observed in perpetuity in the said church of Glasgow, an oath having been supplied by the said dean and chapter as contained in those letters, and the same bishop, when bishop-elect, by an oath supplied, had promised to observe the liberties and customs and statutes of the church itself. The pope therefore commands them to compel those liberties and customs to be reasonably and honestly observed.
