A.D. 1201. ΙΕΤΤΕΒ ΟΓ POPE INNOCENT. 541 and because, according to the canonical sanctions, a lying suitor ought to lose his suit, we will that the said letters shall have no validity whatever. If also, you have refused to admit of the lawful objections of the before-named archdeacon, and have presumed, after appeal lawfully interposed, to take further proceedings in the said cause, we do will nevertheless, and do command you, entirely to desistfrom any further proceedings in the said cause, and to pronounce what has been done by you therein to be utterly null and void. "We do also will, that the cause itself shall be placed in the hands of such judges as ought to be suspected by neither party, or else shall be terminated before ourselves, due justice being done therein. And if you shall chance to neglect our commands, in consequence of the favour or fear of any person, know that we, by our letters, have commanded our venerable brother, the bishop of Rochester, and our dearly-beloved sons, the abbat of Foxley and the prior of Leeds, learning the truth thereon, to perform our commands, all obstacles whatsoever, by way of contradiction or of appeal, removed. Given at the Lateran, on the thirteenth day before the calends of January, in the third year of our pontificate." Another Letter of pope Innocent on the same subject. " Innocent, the pope, to the abbats, priors, deans, parsons, sheriffs, clerks, and laymen throughout the archdeaconry of Eichmond appointed, greeting. Our dearly-beloved son, Master Honorius, your archdeacon, has explained to us that whereas he had canonically obtained the archdeaconry of Eichmond, and had for some time been in possession thereof, a disagreement afterwards ensuing between him and our venerable brother, the archbishop of York, Eoger of Saint Edmund's, a clerk, calling himself the archdeacon of Eichmond, keeping silence on the truth of the matters aforesaid, obtained letters from us to our dearly-beloved sons, the abbats of Saint Edmund's and of Saint Benedict de Holwey,1 and to the prior of-Tofts, directing them, having first given you warning, by ecclesiastical censure, all power of appeal withheld, to compel you to show to him all obedience and respect, and to make him satisfaction for the injuries that had been done to him. But, inasmuch as a lying suitor ought, according to lawful enactment, to lose his suit, we do, by these Apostolic writings, enjoin and command the whole of you 1 The abbat of Sibbeton and the prior of Norwich previously named.
