A.D. 1198. POPE INNOCENT SENDS A LETTER ΤΟ ΤΠΕ KING. 437 but if he should likewise offend a third time, for the third offence no sureties were to be exacted, but the offender's own body. In the same year, the men of the religious orders refused98 to pay the king five shillings for each carucate in tillage, as the other subjects of the kingdom did; on which, an edict went forth from the king, that whoever in his kingdom should commit an offence against a clerk or any other member of the religious orders, he should not be compelled to make satisfaction to him ; but if any clerk or other member of the religious orders should commit an offence against any layman, he should be immediately compelled to make satisfaction to him ; in consequence of which, the members of the religious orders were compelled to ransom themselves99 [from this grievance].

To these persons the archbishop made answer, " You are my feUow-brethre'n, and I will do what you advise me, if you will give me your assurance in writing under the testimony of your seals, that you will stand by that advice in the presence of our lord the pope." On this, the said bishops made answer, 8 8 The text of Hoveden has " voluerunt," " wished," or " were ready the context shows that this is a mistake for " noluerunt." 9 9 By paying, like the rest.
