A.D. 1176. THE ARIAN HERESY CONDEMNED. 423 in the order in •which they happened. However, although we have been afflicted with deep regret for those who have fallen, we have still deemed it advisable to inform you upon all the events that have happened, as being our dearly-beloved friend, and as being closely united with our imperial office, by the ties of blood that exist between our children.

In the same year, Henry, king of England, son of the empress Matilda, gave Eleanor, his daughter, in marriage to Alphonso, king of Castille. In this year also, Gilbert, the son of Fergus, chief of the men of Galloway, who had caused his brother, Ucthrcd, a kinsman of Henry, king of England, to be slain, came into England, with the safe conduct of William, king of the Scots, and did homage to king Henry, the father, and swore fealty to him against all men ; and, to obtain his favor, he gave him a thousand marks of silver and his son Dunccan as a hostage, by way of pledge that he would keep the peace.

Probably " Old" Testament is meant.
