Analysis of Content

Printed side Rudolphus de Scherenberg, Episcopus Herbipolensis: [Proclamation suspending and relaxing excommunications and interdict.] The interdict and other ecclesiastical censures were imposed in the course of the contest, 1480-2, between the Bishop of Würzburg and Albert III Achilles, Elector of Brandenburg and Burggraf of Nuremberg, concerning the taxation of the clergy. They are declared to be suspended, except in the rural chapters of Zenn and Windsheim and the towns of Krelsheim and Leutershausen, in view of the approach of Passiontide and the Easter solemnities; see Politische Correspondenz des Kurfürsten Albrecht Achilles, III, ed.
