Notes

  • -  It had been reported to the King that the ecclesiastical authorities were imposing excommunications for trivial reasons and imposing pecuniary fines on laymen. Because the King felt that greater temperance should be shown in a new land and greater emphasis placed upon good example and avoidance of scandal, he charges them not to excommunicate for slight reasons and not to impose pecuniary fines on laymen.
