Document 2/139/17 (Dunf. Reg., no. 217A)

Pope Honorius III writes to the priors of Monymusk and Restenneth and the dean of Forfar, stating that he has received a complaint from the abbot and convent of Coupar Angus against the abbot and convent of Dunfermline and J., clerk, of the St Andrews and Dunkeld dioceses, concerning the church of Bendochy (PER) and other things. He commands them to call the parties together and hear the case and terminate it without appeal, causing what is decreed to be observed firmly by ecclesiastical censure. If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by a similar stricture, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth. If all of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let two of them do it.
