A.D. 1172. prevent appeals, nor allow them to be prevented ; but they shall freely be made to the Roman Pontiff, in causes ecclesiastical, in good faith, and without fraud and evil-intent, in order that causes may be considered by the Roman Pontiff, and be brought to a conclusion by him ; yet so, that if any parties shall be suspected by you, they shall give you security that they will not seek the injury of you or of your kingdom.
