come into the presence of the Supreme Pontiff and the cardinals, his brethren, and many things having been alleged on the one side and the other, in defence of their rights, the said lord Innocent began, like a most kind father, as also did his brethren, to attempt to effect a reconciliation between them ; and in order that they might have time to deliberate, he put off the further hearing of either party at intervals. Although the commissioners from Tours were at last induced to make an offer to concede an archiépiscopal see to the church of Dol, with two suffragans only, and on condition that it should be subject to the lord archbishop of Tours as its prince, and that the archbishop of Dol should receive from his hand, or that of the church of Tours, the pall that was sent to the said church of Tours from the pope, as also consecration; still, because two of the adjacent bishoprics were refused by the envoys of the archbishop of Tours to the said bishop elect of Dol, he would on no account accept of their said offer ; a refusal indeed, which redounded to his own inconvenience, as will be heard in the sequel. Accordingly, the pope, seeing that the said dispute could not be settled on amicable terms, listened to the citations and allegations made on either side in full consistory, more freely and fully than before. After hearing and understanding them more fully, he was ready at length, with his brethren, to pronounce a definite sentence. But, once more seeking the ways of peace, he invited them to make an arrangement. "When, however, he could at length avaB nothing whatever by these means, the lord Innocent, sitting in judgment, his brethren acting as his assessors, publicly pronounced sentence, in the second year of his papacy, against the church of Dol, and in favour of the church of Tours, to the effect that the church of Dol, as being the suffragan of the church of Tours, its metropoBtan, should, aB exemption or exception laid aside, for the future be subject thereto; that the bishop of Dol should in aB things pay obedience and respect to the archbishop of Tours ; that when he was elected, he should receive confirmation, and, when the proper time required it, consecration from him ; and, in addition to this, he granted a general privBege to the church of Tours, Blustrated with manifold arguments and reasons for the same, and sent to the archbishop of Bouen, and some other persons, his ApostoBc writings relative to the said subject, aU of which wiB appear more fully from what foBows.
