Pope Innocent IV takes the priory of the cathedral church of St Andrews into his protection; the possessions and goods which the abbot and brethren there acquire by papal permission, by the liberality of kings or the gifts of the faithful, shall remain with them, including the place where the church is situated, with its pertinents, in the city of St Andrews, the church of Holy Trinity, with pertinents, the hospital of St Leonard and the grange of Kenly (FIF) which is dependant on the hospital, with pertinents, teinds, houses and streets which are called ‘vicus prioris’, which they have in the city; in the diocese of St Andrews, the churches of Haddington (ELO), Linlithgow (WLO), Dairsie (FIF), Cupar in Fife, Kennoway (FIF), Scoonie (FIF), Markinch (PER), Lathrisk (FIF), Portmoak (KNR), Forgan in Fife, Forgan in Gowrie (Longforgan, PER), Inchture (PER), Rossie (PER), Fowlis Easter (ANG), and St Cyrus (KCD), the priory of the island of Loch Leven, the villas of Kirkness (KNR), Admore (KNR), Bogie (FIF) and Auchterderran (FIF), the teinds which they have in the parish of Lathrisk, the granges of Balone (FIF), Strathkinness (FIF), Drumcarro (FIF), and Naughton (FIF); in the diocese of Dunkeld, the church of Dull (PER) and the chapel of Foss, dependant on the church; in the diocese of Aberdeen, the church of Bourtie (ABD), Tarland (ABD) and Migvie (ABD), with pertinents and other possessions, and their liberties and immunities. Everyone is debarred from presuming to exact teinds from the priory, in respect of fallow lands which they cultivate with their own hands or at their own expenses, or of food for their animals. They are permitted to take in whatever clerics or laymen have fled from the secular world and have converted freely, and to retain them without any contradiction. None of the brothers, after making their profession, shall be permitted to depart without the permission of the prior; no one may intend to depart without the surety of common letters; they are permitted the right to celebrate divine office privately and quietly during a general interdict. They shall have the privilege of anointment, holy oil, dedications of the altar or basilica, benedictions of the abbots, ordinations of the clerics or monks, and all other ecclesiastical sacraments, preferred from any bishop who is catholic and in communion with the apostolic see. No one is permitted to construct oratories or chapels within the boundaries of the parishes of the churches, without the assent of the bishop and prior, saving the privileges of the papacy. No archbishop, bishop, archdeacon or dean shall impose new exactions or customs of the churches or chapels which are not owed. Burial, for those who shall decide to be buried in that place, will be unimpeded, except for those excommunicated or under interdict, saving justice to the church where they are buried. Teinds and possessions belonging to the church by right which are detained by laymen are to be returned to the priory. On the death of the prior, or his successors, no one may be advanced to that office by deceit or violence, unless the brothers by common consent, or a majority of them, shall provide that the prior be elected in accordance with the Augustinian rule. Within their enclosed places or granges, no one may commit arson or theft, robbery, seize or murder men, or committing other violence. He establishes all the liberties and immunities granted by his predecessors and those liberties and exemptions of secular exaction granted by kings, by princes or other faithful. The pope directs that no man is permitted to disturb the church or carry away its possessions; saving to the bishop canonical justice and reverence and the authority of the apostolic see. Should any secular person attempt to go against this, after three warnings if he should not make amends, he may lost his honour and be liable to divine justice, and subject himself to retribution.
