A.D. 1186. LETTER OF POPE URBAN. 57 this world ought not to feel themselves aggrieved inconsequence thereof, if sometimes we think proper to extend our hands for the correction of those things which they have done amiss ; inasmuch as they themselves also, in conformity with the power that has been entrusted to them, ought to aid us herein, and, when it is necessary and the obstinacy of any stands in need thereof, stoutly to resist the contumacy prompted by a spirit of wickedness.
