[2] Firmis columnis domum Dei edificat, qui personas in ea edificat, vel plantat litteratas et honestas. In virtute enim et scientia personarum constat ecclesie ornamentum.1

[4] Latorem itaque presentium filium nostrum honestate et scientia vobis commendantes, rogamus attentius, ut intuitu Dei et consideratione proprius probitatis|[110v] ipsius ipsum in canonicum et fratrem suscipiatis. Credimus enim quod ipse prestabit se vas mundum, vas virtutibus refertum, ut et ipse gaudeat in Domino et Dominus in ipso.


1 Encyclical letter of commendation, requesting that the bearer be admitted as a canon. See above, letter no. 28 (Ornamentum est). Following the usual form for such encylicals, this letter lacks a narration.
