A .D. 1188. LETTER. OF POPE CLEMENT. 95 tion to be null and void. But if, which may God forbid, you have presumed, by the persuasion of the enemy of mankind, to be guilty of any conspiracy against the said bishop John, then both yourselves, as also the whole see, we are determined to subject to sentence of interdict untB such time as, acknowledging your transgressions, you shaB have returned to obedience to the commands of the said bishop John. Given at Pisa, on the seventeenth day before the calends of February, in the sixth year of the indiction." Another Letter of the mine pope on the same subject. " Clement, the bishop, servant of the servants of God, to his venerable brethren, Joeelyn, bishop of Glasgow, Matthew, bishop of Aberdeen, and Bichard, bishop of Moray, and his dearly-beloved sons Ernulph, abbat of Melrose, Hugh, abbat of Newbottle, and the abbats of Holyrood, Stirling, and Scone, health and the Apostolic benediction. Although it is our belief . that, even without our advice, it is incumbent upon you to give your serious and dBigent attention, in conformity with the duties of your office, to those things which concern a good Bfe and conduce to the salvation of souls, stiB, we have thought fit, by these Apostolic letters, to exhort your diligence to manifest greater anxiety in these respects; to the end that the more fervently you devote yourselves to those works so worthy of aB praise, the more healthful it may be for you in these respects to apply yourself with aB diligence to comply with the exhortations of the ApostoBc See. And whereas it is clear that some prelates of churches must, together with those who have been offended, submit to the heat of persecution, and be weak with those who are weak, in obedience tothe rule laid down by the Apostle86—howgreat the persecutions which the church of Saint Andrew's has lately sustained, how great the calamities and oppressions it has endured ! how much, also, has it been disturbed and shaken of late under the shadow of the indignation of his royal highness ! and, above aB, how many and how great the dangers which our brother John, the bishop of Saint Andrew's, has endured ! how many the perBs to which he has been exposed, and what have been his labours in preserving the Hberties of the church entrusted to his care, and confirmed to him. by ourselves and our two predecessors ! butinasmuch as all this is well known to you, it seems needless to reiterate the same to your hearing. 8 6 Alluding to the words in 1 Cor. ix. 21, 22.
