Λ . η. 11S9.] COUNCIL ΛΤ WESTSIIXSTUK. king had sont a letter to the king of England, asking him likewise to give him a guarantee at the same term for the prosecution of his journey. On this the king of England assembled the bishops and nobles of the kingdom at Westminster; and, after hearing the oath of the king of the French, to the effect that he would hasten his departure without fail, he ordered William his carl marshal to make oath by his own soul, that he, Richard would, at the time previously fixed on, meet the king of the French at Vi/elai in order to start together from that place for the laud of promise. The ambassadors, having fulfilled the object of their mission, returned to their own country. On the 1st of November in this year Godfrey de Lucy of Winchester, and Hubert Walter bishop of Salisbury elect, received consecration at the hands of Baldwin archbishop of Canterbury, in the chapel of St. Catherine at Westminster. Of a conversation nade liciteceli the archbishop of Canterbury and the inunks of that place, and other matters. In the same month of November, John cardinal of Anagni, arrived in England at Dover; and as the king was in the northern part of the kingdom, he was forbidden by queen Eleanor to proceed farther without an order from the king ; on which he spent thirteen days there at the expense of the archbishop, until peace should be made between the archbishop and the monks of Canterbury concerning the chapel of Akington. But Richard, who was a very wise king, being appealed to on both sides, came and in the same month of November arranged final terms of peace between them, as follows:—First, that Roger the prior, whom the archbishop had installed in that onice in opposition to the wishes of the monks, should be deposed ; that the chapel, which the archbishop had built in the suburb without their consent, should be destroyed; that the monks aforesaid should, according to the rule of St. Benedict, show canonical obedience and subjection to the archbishop; as they had been accustomed to do to his predecessors; and at the request of the archbishop the king gave to the deposed prior the abbacy of Evesham. It was also provided that the chapel aforesaid should not have the privilege of baptism or burial, nor the administering of any sacred rites, except such as could be discharged by one secular priest.
