A.D. 1194. LIBERATION OF RICHARD, KING OF ENGLAND. 309 to depose him ; and they in especial, whom he had enriched with the greatest honors, and with inestimable wealth and revenues in the church of York, and beyond what, with due regard to God, he ought to have done. Of such it is, that the Lord saith, " I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me."'* Therefore, let them beware, lest the just Judge despise them, and lest with the traitor Judas they be condemned to hell. These allegations being made, our lord the pope wrote to Hugh, bishop of Lincoln, and his fellow judges, that if there should be any to accuse the archbishop on these charges, they should carefully hear what was alleged on either side, and after enquiry into the truth thereof, send their report, sealed with their seals, to the Apostolic See.

But because not even then he appeared in the Roman court, either personaBy, or by sufficient proxy, he was at the Nativity of our Lord next ensuing, suspended from the performance of aB episcopal duties. · The liberation of Richard, king of England. In the meantime, Henry, emperor of the Romans, with the * Is. i. 3.
