407 A.D. 1197. EXILE OF THE ARCHBISHOP OF DUBLIN. keeper, and then, ascending to the top of it, shouted with a loud voice the war-cry of the Christians, " Christ, the Son of God, aid us and his Holy sepulchre." Alarmed at the cry, the pagans fled to the mountains, leaving the castle, the city, their provisions, and their arms, on which the Christians were received into the city and the castle with gladness. After this, the said archbishop of Mentz, by the advice and wish of the chief men of Germany, gave to Aimeric, lord of Cyprus, Acre, and Tyre, and Baruth,63 and the other cities which they had taken ; and then gave him Milicent to wife, who had been the wife of Henry, count of Champagne, and crowned them in the city of Baruth ; on which Aimeric became the liegeman of Henry, emperor of the Bomans, for the isle of Cyprus. Of the Exile of John, Archbishop of Dublin. In the same year, Hamo de Valence, and the other guardians of Ireland, liegemen of earl John, brother of Bichard, king of England, did great injuries to John Cumin, archbishop of DubBn. Consequently, the said archbishop, preferring to go into exBe, rather than endure that these enormities against him and his church should any longer go unpunished, excommunicated the said presumptuous men, and, pronouncing sentence of interdict upon his archbishopric, took his departure. He also ordered the crosses and images of the cathedral church to be laid on the ground, and to be surrounded with thorns, that thus these malefactors might be smitten with fear, and be checked in their intentions to rage against the property of the church. But while they were still persevering in their malignant purposes, a miracle happened, in our times quite unheardof. There was, in the cathedral church of Dublin, a cross, on which the figure of Christ was carved with great exactness ; this, aB the Irish, as well as others, held in the greatest veneration. Now, while this crucifix was lying prostrate on the ground, and surrounded with thorns, on the sixth day of the week, it feB into an agony, and the face appeared to be suffused with an exceeding red colour, just as though it were before a heated furnace, and a violent sweat ran down from the face, and from its eyes fell drops, as though it were weeping ; and at the sixth hour of the day, blood and water came forth from • 3 Now Beyrout.
