Document 2/140/62 (Lind. Cart., no. 50A)

Pope Gregory IX writes to the bishop, dean and treasurer of Glasgow, noting that he has received word from the bishop of Dunblane that a dispute had been called between A[braham], his predecessor, and the abbot and convent of Lindores concerning the church of Muthill (PER), called before the prior of St Andrews and his colleagues. Both parties agreed on oath to submit to the bishop of St Andrews, who promulgated an unjust arbitration to the great injury of the church of Dunblane. Whereby, the bishop of the said church demanded the said church be assisted through restitution. He thus commands them, if they find that through that arbitration the church of Dunblane had been injured, to proceed with restitution so that justice might occur, 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 If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth.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 the bishop and one other do it.
