text: Dec 25 1170 - Aug 31 1171. In the presence of Patriarch Amalric of Jerusalem, at the mediation of Heraclius archidiaconus Hierosolymitanus and magister Monachus domni patriarche cancellarius, and with the consent of both their chapters, Bernardus Liddensis episcopus and Petrus Dominici Sepulcri prior come to an agreement. Bernardus gives the canons of the Holy Sepulchre half of the tithes taken on harvests, wine, oil, beasts, fowl and other things in a casale called Bermenayn. Petrus concedes to the church and bishop of Lydda half of all the tithes of harvests of the 4 casalia, referred to in a charter of gift from Rogerius quondam Liddensis episcopus, of Capharuth, Git, Kephrecylta and Porfilia. Of these, the first 2 were given and the others exchanged. Exempted from the payment of tithes of all 5 casalia will be fodder for beasts and feeding for fowls, but half tithes will be paid on the products of the canons’ own labour. Bernardus, with the consent of his chapter, gives the canons of the holy Sepulchre the right to churches and the building of new ones in the 5 casalia, with full parochial rights, although the priests [sacerdotes] appointed by the canons should be obedient to the bishop, who retains the right to summon them to a synod, to bless the chrism and oils they need, to consecrate altars and ordain clergy, and to impose interdicts and excommunications.
