sitors from submitting the Templars to the disciplineof the rack* JAMS* DU Influenced by the admonitions of the pope, and the solicitations A . D. nie. of the clergy, king Edward, on the 26th of August, sent orders to John de Crumbewcll, constable of the Tower, to deliver up all the Templars in his custody, at the request of the in quisitors, to the sheriffs of London, in order that the inquisitors might be able to proceed more conveniently and effectually with their inquisition. + And on the same day he directed the sheriffs to receive the prisoners from the constable of the Tower, and cause them to be placed in the custody of gaolers appointed by the inquisitors, to be confined in prisons or such other conve nient places in the city of London as the inquisitors and bishops should think expedient, and generally to permit them to do with the bodies of the Templars whatever should seem fitting, in accordance with ecclesiastical law. He directs, also, that from thenceforth the Templars should receive their sustenance at the hands of such newly-appointed gaolers.J On the Tuesday after the feast of St. Matthew, (Sept. 21st,) the ecclesiastical council again assembled at Loudon, and caused the inquisitions and depositions taken against the Templars to be read, which being done, great disputes arose touching various alterations observable in them. It was at length ordered that the Templars should be again confined in separate cells in the prisons of London ; that fresh interrogatories should be pre pared, to see if by such means the truth could be extracted, and * Inuibmstì ne contra ipsas persuase et ordinerà per owettiones nd inquirendum super eisdem criminibus procedatur, quamvis iidem Templari! diffiteri dicuntur super eisdem articulis veritatem .... .
