A.D. 1199. THE CHURCH OP DOL DEPRIVED OF THE PALL. 469 But when the bishop elect of Dol heard that sentence was pronounced against him, being vexed, and not without reason, and very dispirited, he came into the presence of our lord the pope, and, wishing to depose himself, resigned to our lord the pope the church of Dol. But our lord the pope, on seeing this, answered without hesitation, " Thou art the bridegroom, and the bride requireth thee. Thou canst not do that which is against our wBl, Vithout our own consent ; and, in virtue of thy obedience, we enjoin thee, after summons made by the archbishop of Tours, to repair to him within the space of forty days, aB excuse whatever laid aside, for the purpose of receiving from him the gift of consecration." In the same year, master Giraldus,41 the bishop elect of Saint David's, raised a controversy as to the metropolitan right over the church of Saint David's, publicly asserting the right of the said church and its ancient metropoBtan dignity, in presence of our lord the pope Innocent the Third, and the cardinals, namely, Octavianus, cardinal of Ostia, the cardinal of Portuenza, John, cardinal bishop of Albano, Jordan de Fossa Nova, Sephred, John de Saint Paul, John de Salerno, Gratianus, Ugolino, and Hugeson.42 It ought to be known that after Saint Dubricius, the archbishop of the city of Chester, choosing the Bfe of a recluse, had resigned the honor of his dignity to Saint David, the latter forthwith transferred the archiépiscopal dignity to Menevia,43 and was made archbishop of that province ; and, in succession to him, twenty-four persons received the paB and the full metropolitan dignity, the last of whom was Saint Samson, who, on account of the jaundice, which pestilence was committing fatal ravages amongstthe people of Wales at that time, crossed over by ship to Armorican Brittany, and was appointed over the church of Dol, which then chanced to be vacant, and there made use of the pall of Saint David, which he had brought over with him. On this pretext it was, that the church of Dol, by continuaBy laying claim to the pall, had shown itself rebeBious to the church of Tours, down to the time of the before-named pope Innocent the Third, in whose second year this cause was decided, and this adventitious dignity was withdrawn from the church of Dol. 4 1 Giraldus Cambrensis, the famous scholar and historian. 4 2 Or Ugutio, called by some authors Hugh de Peter Leonis. 4 3 The Latin name formed from the British one of Saint David's.
