514 ANNALS OP ROGER DE HOVEDEN. A.D. 1179. without the consent of their bishops, to reeeive ehurches and tithes from the hands of laymen, not taking regard of what up to the present time they have, contrary to the tenor hereof, received. Persons excommunicated and by name laid under interdict, we do pronounce to be avoided both by them and by all other persons whatsoever, in conformity with the sentences pronounced by the bishops. In those of their churches which do not belong to them fully of right, they are to present priests to the bishops for institution therein, who shall be answerable to them for their care of the people, and give to themselves a proper account as to the temporal things thereof. Also, they are not to presume to remove those once instituted without consulting the bishops thereon. And if Templars or Hospitallers come to a church laid under interdict, they are to be admitted only onee in a year to perform service therein, and not even then are they to bury there the bodies of those under interdict. Also, as to these fraternities we do enact, that if they shall not entirely join the brethren aforesaid, but shall think proper to reside upon their own properties, still they are in nowise on that account to be exempt from the sentence of the bishops, who are to exercise their authority over them just like the other persons of their dioceses,, where they require correction for their excesses. "What has been said above as to the aforesaid brethren we do also command to be observed as to other persons in religious orders who in their presumption intrude upon the path, and presume to enter on a course contrary to their own canonical professions and the tenor of our own privileges. If, however, they shall presume to contravene this enactment, both the churches in which they shall presume so to do shall be laid under interdict, and what they have done shall be deemed null and void." These decrees being promulgated and received by the whole of the clergy and people standing around, the bishops and other ecclesiastics who had met together, with the gift of the benediction, received leave to return home. In the same year, the king of England, the son, returned from Normandy to England at mid-Lent, and, during the following Easter, he and the king, his father, were at Winchester. After Easter, Richard de Lucy, justiciary of England, resigned the office of justiciary, and became a eanon-regular in his abbey of Lewes," which he himself had founded on his property and 4 1 In Kent.
