Document 2/140/18 (St A. Lib., 393-4)

Pope Gregory IX writes to the prior and archdeacon of St Andrews and the dean of Fife noting that a complaint has been made to him by the prior and convent of May against the abbot of Scone and certain others of the St Andrews diocese concerning certain teinds, fisheries and other things. He thus commands them to call together the parties, 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 If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth.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.
