In the same year, upon the death of Master Eichard of Coldingham, Philip, bishop of Durham, and Bertram, prior of the church of Durham, disagreed as to the right of presentation of the churches of the aforesaid Eichard. Por the bishop said that the presentation belonged to him, as bishop and abbat of the church of Durham ; to which, the prior made answer, that the presentation belonged to him, because his predecessors and himself, without any one gainsaying it, had presented the same as priors and lords of the soil, and that they held aB the power of abbat in the choir, and in the management of the house, and of their revenues, by grant of the king, and through institution by the bishops of Durham, and confirmation by the Pontiffs of Eome. But this controversy was not allowed to rest, indeed it increased to such a degree, that by order of the bishop of Durham, Aimeric, the archdeacon of Durham, blockaded the church of Saint Oswald, in Elvet, to which the monks had retired, and would not aBow provisions to be carried to them. One day even, after appeal had been made to the pope by the monks, the said Aimeric caused fire to be set to the door of the church, that thus, by means of the smoke and vapour, the fire might expel the monks. However, God changed the feelings of the bishop for the better, and, out of respect for Saint Cuthbert, he bestowed the said church on the monks, for their sole use, and by his charter confirmed the same ; he also granted them the free disposal of their churches, though with but a tardy assent on his part.

After the sad faB of the kingdom of Jerusalem, after the lamentable slaughter of the people of Christendom, after the deplorable invasion of that land on which the feet of Christ had stood, and where God, our king, had deigned to work salvation in the midst of the earth, after the ignominious retreat of the vivifying Cross
