A.D. 1189. PREPARATIONS FOR THE CRUSADE. In this charter also it was stated that Thomas, at that time archbishop of York, had received priest's orders and episcopal consecration at the hands of Lanfranc, at that fime archbishop of Canterbury and primate of all England, and paid to him canonical obedience, and came to his synods with the bishop of the church of Lindisfarne and -his other suffragan bishops, and showed him all respect as being his primate. This charter also attested that all the above things had taken place before king William, at the general council held at London, in accordance with the final sentence pronounced thereon by pope Alexander the Second. On the following day, John, bishop elect of Whitheme, was consecrated bishop by John, archbishop of Dublin, at Pipewell, it being the Lord's Day, and the fifteenth day before the calends of October.

In consequence of this, the king deprived him of the see of York, and a great dissension arose between them, so much so, that the king went so far even as to deprive him of aB his possessions on either side of the sea. However, shortly after, the said archbishop elect of York received priest's orders from John, bishop of Whitherne, his suffragan, on the fourth day before the calends of September, at Swale.27 In the meantime, Bichard, king of 'England, sending his envoys to pope Clement, obtained from him letters patent, that such persons as he should think fit to excuse and leave in charge of his dominions, should be exempt from assuming the cross, and proceeding to Jerusalem ; by which means he obtained an immense sum of money. 2 7 In the text " Suuelle."
