DE Exco MONICATIONE. Si quis excommunicat, excommunicationem in scriptis proferat, et causam excommunicationis expresse conscribat, propter quam exconmunicatio proferatur. Exemplum vero scripturæ hujusmodi teneatur excommunicato tradere infra mensem si fuerit requisitus, super qua requisitione fieri volumus publicum instrumentum vel litteras testimoniales confici, sigillo autentico signatas.

Quando quis sollemniter excommunicat, dicat hoc modo :

Ex auctoritate Dei Patris omnipotens et Filii et Spiritus Sancti et sanctorum apostolorum et sanctorum canonum et nostri ministerii anathematizamus atque a liminibus sanctae Dei matris ecclesiæ sequestramus illos qui hoc mala fecerunt vel consenserunt, vel terras sancti Petri depopulati sunt; ut non habeant partem cum Deo neque cum sanctis ejus. Et nisi restitueriut et ad satisfactionem vencrint, sic extinguatur lucerna eorum in sæcula sæculorum. Fiat, Fiat.

• This is added in the Cambridge MS. on the margin in a later Land.
