ψ A.D. 1196. LETTER OF POPE CELESTINrS. , 377 penalty of suspension, if those things -which had been signified unto us should be established, or, if the same should not be lawfully proved, then through canonical purgation, which we had caused to be prescribed to him with three bishops and as many abbats, to withhold him from such excesses, and thereby to recall him to the path of truth. But, inasmuch as the said archbishop, before the citation of the said judges had reached him, had made appeal to the Apostolic See, the said judges, in accordance with the tenor of our letters, indulging him with a space of three months, were careful to assign the same to him as the period -within which he was not to delay the prosecution of his said appeal. And further, after the said archbishop had commenced his journey for the purpose of coming to the ApostoBc See, fearing lest, through the inclemency of the weather, some danger might befaB his person, when by letters and messengers he begged us mercifully to extend the time that had been granted to him, we, assenting to his requests, and imagining that on that account he would more speedily repent of his excesses, as he had found us so propitious and ready to Bsten to his prayers, appointed untB the octave of Saint Martin last past as the time for presenting his appeal for the purpose of exculpating himself; giving it as our command, nevertheless, to the aforesaid judges, that, if by such time the archbishop should have neglected to present himsek0 before us, hi such case they wero from that time to proceed in his cause according to the tenor of our letters, and make it their object to carry out the instructions given them therein. And whereas the said timo has now expired, and he has neither come to the Church of Borne nor sent any proxy hi any way to make excuse for his absence, and, in consequence thereof, considering his disobedience and contumacy, we have thought proper to suspend him from the use of the paB, and from the performance of his pontuical duties, and from all ministration in things temporal as weB as spiritual, and from the receipt of profits, giving orders by our Apostolic writings to the aforesaid judges, publicly to announce throughout the whole diocese and province of York, that he has been suspended by us. Wherefore, we do command the whole of you, by these Apostolic writings, that you wiB not henceforth presume to make answer to the said archbishop or to his oflicers, either in matters spiritual or temporal. But if it shaB happen that any questions shall arise between any of you in the diocese of York, which ought to be settled by ecclesiastical judgment, you are to take the same
