or shall pertinaciously close their ears against listening to the same as obdurate, to the end that lawlessness may not be granted them by reason of their going unpunished, you are to take care to have it published by general notice, that all who shall not for the performance of their vow have resumed the cross which they had laid aside, within the time named, shall, at the ensuing Easter of our Lord, beyond a doubt be excluded from receiving the body of Christ and the communion of the faithful. But, in order that the words of such warning may not be thought or deemed to be frivolous, or to be wanting in due effect, we do will, and, by the Apostolic authority, command, that the aforesaid punishment shall, on the said day, be inflicted entirely according to the form, and quite as fully as is herein-before stated, upon all who shall show themselves contumacious. For in this way from the homely seed of rigour, it will shoot up hereafter as the fruit thereof, that the authority of prelates will be weighed with a truer balance against canonical severity ; 4 6 and those who shall be ready to rush into contempt, will be less audacious in expecting a full indemnity. Farewell." In the same year, after the feast of Saint Hilary, Philip, king of France, and Richard, king of England, had an interview at Louviers, where, after holding conference with their retainers, the following terms were agreed to : the king of France quitted claim to the king of England and his heirs, on part of himself and his heirs, of Issodun with its appurtenances, and of all right which he had in Berry, Auvergne, and Gascony, and gave him quiet possession of the castle of Arches, the county of Auch, the county of Aumarle, and many other castles which he had taken during the war. In return for this, the king of England quitted claim to the king of France of the castle of Gisors, and the whole of the Norman Yexin ; and that all these terms might be ratified, they determined between themselves on a penalty of fifteen thousand marks of silver, so that he who should break this peace, should pay to the other fifteen thousand marks of silver ; and, as to the same, they found sureties on either side. The king of France also demanded for himself Andely, a manor which belonged to the archbishop of Rouen ; and when he could on no account obtain it, he demanded fealty to be done KI.e. the rigour will be more on an equality with the authority.
