text: Feb. 1-28. At Vadum Jacob. In response to an admonition from Pope Alexander III, Odo Sancti Amancii magister milicie Templi and Rotgerius de Molinis minister Hospitalis Iherusalem, with the advice and agreement of their chapters, resolve disputes between the Temple and the Hospital over moveables and immoveables on this side and beyond the sea. The Templar complaints involve: Cratum; misbehaviour at Mons Ferrantus; looting from Beduini of the Templars perpetrated by turcopoli from Gibelinum; the terra Marriciorum, where it has been agreed that commertium should be divided between the Temple and the Hospital, according to the rights the Hospitallers ought to have; the 3 casalia of Terra Galifa, Banna and casale Bertrandimir, of which Terra Galifa and Banna will remain in Hospitaller hands and casale Bertrandimir will remain in Templar possession. The Hospitaller complaints involve: Gaza; Castellum Arnaldi; Aman; and the commandery [domus] at Barletta, all of which are dismissed. The pope’s advice was that if any dispute should arise in future it should be resolved by a panel consisting of 3 brothers from each side. The masters agree that in such cases commanders from each side, of either commanderies or provinces, should enlist 2 of the more discreet brothers to arbitrate. If these are unsuccessful, friendly outsiders should be recruited and a decision taken by majority vote. In the last resort the details of the dispute should be submitted in writing to the masters for resolution. Brothers who refuse to abide by this should summoned to face the master and chapter in Jerusalem. The agreement is reached in the presence of domnus Balduinus sancte civitatis Iherusalem rex Latinorum sextus, domnus Boumundus Antiochenus princeps and domnus Raimundus, comes Tripolitanus, who append their seals; and of domnus Aldebertus comes Marche; domnus Joicilinus regius senescalcus; domnus Balianus; domnus Rainaldus Sydoni-ensis; domnus Humfredus regius comestabulus; domnus Balduinus Ramatensis; and other barones of eastern Christendom.
