A.D. 1165. THE ABCHEISHOP TO HIS SUFFRAGAN BISHOPS. 277 vived in Germany, as also for communicating with that most notorious schismatic, Reginald of Cologne ; and because, contrary to the mandate of our lord the pope and of myself, he has taken unlawful possession of the deanery of the church of Salisbury ; a deed which, so detestable as it is, so contrary to right, so pernicious in its example to the Church of God, we do make utterly nuR and void, and do render it of no effect whatsoever; and it is our command to the bishop of Salisbury, and the chapter of that church, in virtue of their obedience, and at the peril of their orders, on seeing this our letter, thenceforth no longer to hold him as dean thereof.
