Book V, Letter 26

To the people of Ravenna.

Gregory to the clergy, gentry, and common people of Ravenna.

Having been informed of the death of your bishop, we have taken care to delegate to our brother and fellow bishop Severus of Ficulum the visitation of the bereaved Church, to whom we have given in charge to allow nothing with respect to the promotions of the clergy, the revenues, ornaments, and ministrations, to be usurped by any one. It is for you to render obedience to his assiduous exhortations. According to custom.
