394 ASSAIS OF HOG EE BE HOYEDEX. Α.Γ. 1175. 5 1 "Also, with regard to vicars, who on their promise and oath are bound to their parsons, we have thought proper to enact, that if, despising their promise or the obligation of their oath, they shall falsely take upon themselves the character of parson, and set themselves up against their parsons, and if they shall upon trial confess thereto or be convicted thereof, then for the future they are not to be admitted in the same bishopric to the discharge of the duties of their office. 52 "All tithes of the land, whether of corn or of fruit, arc the Lord's, and are sanctified unto Him. But, inasmuch as many are found unwilling to give tithes, we do enact, that according to the commands of our lord the pope, they shall be admonished a first, second, and third time, to give tithes in full of corn, wine, fruits of trees, young of animals, wool, lambs, butter, cheese, flax, hemp, and other things which are renewed yearly ; and if, upon being admonished, they do not make amends, let them understand that they are subject to excommunication. "And further, let the imperial sanction put a check upon litigation, and the audacity of those who inconsiderately appeal to law, by condemning them to pay the costs, and various other remedies. And inasmuch as this is known to be in unison with the holy institutions, we do order, that for the future, in such actions for the recover)' of money as shall be tried among clerks, the party who is the loser shall be condemned to pay eosts to his opponent. As for him who shall not be able to make such payment, I leave him to be punished at the discretion of his bishop. 6 3 " W e do find in the holy list only ten prefaces 5 4 that are to be received : the first on the first Sunday after Easter,55 ' Et te quidem omni tempore.'1 The second on Ascension Day, 5 1 From a decree of pope Alexander the Third, addressed to the bishop of Norwich. b i From the decrees of the council of Rouen. 53 54 From a decree of pope Pelagius. The preface or introduction to the canon of the mass. 6 5 In the text " in Albis Pascbalibus." This was the Sunday more generally called "Dominica in Albis," the word "depositis" being understood : as on that day, according to the Roman ritual, those lately baptized laid aside the white garments which they had assumed on the Sunday before Easter. 1 This preface, according to the Roman ritual, is read from Holy Saturday until the Ascension ; it begins, " It is truly meet and just, right and available to salvation to praise thee, Ο Lord."
