AXXALS OF ROGEB DE IIOVEDEX. A.D. 1172. archbishop of Canterbury, of blessed memory, and he feared that they had perpetrated that profane deed in consequence of his agitated state of mind and the perturbation in which they had seen him, he made oath that he would give satisfaction in the following manner :— In the first place, he made oath that he would not withdraw from Alexander, the Supreme Pontiff, and his Catholic successors, so long as they should repute him to be a Catholic king. He also made oath that he would neither prevent appeals nor allow them to be prevented, but that they should be freely made in his kingdom to the Roman Pontiff in causes ecclesiastical ; yet so, that if any parties should be suspected by him, they should give him security that they would not seek the injury of him or of his kingdom. He also made oath that, for a period of three years from the Nativity of our Lord then next ensuing he would assume the cross, and would in the following summer go in person to Jerusalem, unless he should remain at home by permission of Alexander, the Supreme Pontiff, or of his Catholic successors : provided, that if in the meantime, by reason of urgent necessity, he should set out for Spain to war against the Saracens, then for so long a period as he should he engaged ia that expedition he might defer setting out for Jerusalem Besides this, he made oath that in the meantime he would give to the Templars as much money as in the opinion of the brethren of the Temple would suffice for the maintenance of two hundred knights, for the defence of the land of Jerusalem, during a period of one year. Besides this, he remitted his wrath and displeasure against all those, both clergy and laity, who were in exile for the cause of Saint Thomas, and aBowed them freely and peacefully to return home. He also made oath that the possessions of the church of Canterbury, if any had been taken away, he would restore in fuB, in the same state in which they were one year before the blessed Thomas, archbishop of Canterbury, had departed from England. He also made oath that he would utterly abolish the customs which had been introduced in his time to the prejudice of the churches of his kingdom.
