[A.D . 1213. 2GS ROGER OF WENT/OVER. As to tlie otlier points, if any doubts, worthy of being entertained, nrise, if they are not set at rest by the legati' or delegate of our lord the pope, they shall be referred to the pope himself, and whatever he determines shall be abided by. Witness myself, at Dover, this 13th day of -May, in the fourteenth year of our reign.* I loir king John resigned his crotcn and the kingdom of England into the hands of pope innocent. Matters having been thus arranged on the fifteenth of May, which was the eve of Ascension-day, the English king and Pandulph, with the nobles of the kingdom, met at the house of the knights templars near Dover, and there the said king, according to a decree pronounced at Rome, resigned his crown with the kingdoms of England and Ireland into the hands of our lord the pope, whose functions the said Pandulph was then performing. After having resigned them then he gave the aforesaid kingdoms to tlie pope and his successors, and confirmed them to the latter by the underwritten charter ;— " Jnltn, by the ijraee of (ioti, hi/te/ of England. Str. to all the faithful servants of Christ who shall behold this charter, health in the Lord.—We wish it, by this our charter signed with our seal, to be known to you, that we, having in many things offended God and our mother the holy church, and being in great need of the divine mercy for our sins, and not having wherewithal to make a worthy offering as an atonement to God, and to pay the just demands of the church, unless we humiliate ourselves before Him who humiliated himself for us even to death ; we, impelled by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and not by force or from fear of the interdict, but of • " About the same time king; .John accused Robert 1'itz-Walter of treachery anil rebellion, am! on tin- day after the feast of St. Hilary, which was a Monday, he ordered Haynnrd's castle at London to be pulled down by the Londoners. On the Thursday following. Nicholas bishop of Tusculum, came to Knglaiul as legate, and went (irst to Westminster; (here he stayed eighteen days, and entered into a careful discussion with the conventual assembly of that church on the reformai ion of spiritual and temporal mntters. On the feast of Si. Kdimuid he went to Evesham, and for evident reasons deposed Hogcr the abbat of that church, appointing lt-ilph prior of Worcester in his Mead. In the same year, too, died Geoffrey Fitz-Peter justiciary of Knglnnd.'— M. Paris.
