Pope Nicholas IV writes to the bishop of Aberdeen, noting how Hugh, bishop of Aberdeen, his predecessor, wished to enlarge the cathedral but was unable to carry out his plan on the intended scale. He thus grants to the bishop for three years, of the first year’s fruits of all churches, prebends, and benefices becoming void in his diocese, to be employed solely on the said fabric, the cure of souls in the said churches and benefices not being neglected. Concurrent mandate to the archdeacon of Moray.
