Α.Ο. 1176. THE POPE'S LEGATE HOLDS A COTOCTL. To the aforesaid council held at Northampton, came William, king of the Scots, in obedience to the command of our lord the king, bringing -with him Eichard, bishop of Saint Andrews, Jocclyn, bishop of Glasgow, Richard, bishop of Dunkeld, Christian, bishop of Whitherne, Andrew, bishop of Caithness, and Simon de Touy, bishop of Moray, together with the other bishops, abbats, and priors of his kingdom. When they had come before our lord the king of England, our lord the king commanded, by the fealty which they owed him, and the oath of fealty which they had made to him, that they should show the same obedience to the Church of England which they were in duty bound, and used to show, in the times of the kings of England, his predecessors. On this, they made answer to him that they never had paid obedience to the Church of England, nor was it their duty so to do; to which, Roger, archbishop of York, made reply, and alleged that the bishops of Glasgow and the bishops of Whitherne had been subject to the church of York in the time of the archbishops, his predecessors; and, relative therfeto, he satisfactorily pointed out the privileges granted by the Roman Pontiffs. Jocclyn, bishop of Glasgow, made reply to these assertions to the following effect : " The church of Glasgow is in especial the daughter of the Church of Rome, and is exempt from all subjection to either archbishops or bishops ; and, if the church of York has at any time had authority over the church of Glasgow, it is clear that, in future, she deserves to hold no dorninion whatsoever over her." As Richard the archbishop of Canterbury was using his best endeavours that the Church of Scotland might be rendered subject to the church of Canterbury, he prevailed upon the king of England to allow the bishops of Scotland to return to their own country without yielding any subjection to the Church of England. In the same year, at mid-Lent, the above-named Hugezun, cardinal, titular of Saint Michael de Petra Leonis, and legate of the Apostolic See, came to London to hold a council there. Here he was met by the archbishops of Canterbury and York, and all the bishops and abbats of England, with great numbers of the clergy. The said cardinal took his seat at Westminster, in the chapel of the Infirm Monks, and the bishops and abbats with him, each in his place, according to his rank
