Document 2/125/1 (ESC, no. 102)

Pope Innocent II writes to John, bishop of Glasgow reminding him of his consecration by Pope Paschal, saving the right of the church of York, and that Popes Calixtus and Honorius commanded him to obey Archbishop Thurstan of York as his own metropolitan. Thurstan has maintained that although John promised to obey him that promise remains unfulfilled. Innocent warns that John should obey Archbishop Thurstan, otherwise the pontiff cannot refrain from rendering justice to the archbishop.
