Document 2/156/20 (Newb. Reg., no. 262)

Pope Boniface [VIII] addresses the abbots and convents of the Cisterican Order and states that by the great affection he has for the order and for them, and in consideration of Robert, Cardinal Titular of St. Pudentiana, [who was] of the order, [and] who reverently exposed the pope to the order, he grants to the Cistercians, by the authority of the present charter, that the holders of their cultivated and uncultivated lands, belonging to their order, which they relinquished to these individuals, and granted to be tended in posterity, should not to secure the teinds or first-fruits belonging to the Cistercians, or to their cultivated lands, nor should these individuals be able to extract or extort other teinds or first-fruits. The pope eternally decrees ineffective and inane whatever will attempt to go against the tenor of this indulgence.
