Book V, Letter 25

To Severus, Bishop.

Gregory to Severus, Bishop of Ficulum.

The report that has been sent to us has informed us of the death of the bishop John. Wherefore we solemnly delegate to your Fraternity the work of the visitation of the bereaved Church: which work it becomes you so to execute that no one may presume to interfere with respect to the promotions of the clergy, the revenues, ornaments, ministrations, or whatever else belongs to the patrimony of the same Church. According to custom.
