The Treasury at Chichester Cathedral is full of fascinating items, but I love this one: A pardon for an early bishop, though it makes no mention of what he had done. This is from the information provided:
Papal pardon to Godfrey, 2nd bishop of Chichester (1088, consecrated in January and died in September) found in 1830 near where his stone coffin was discovered in Paradise, the burial ground in the cloisters, the year before.
Restored and mounted in 1996 through the generosity of the West Sussex Archaeological Unit, the Cathedral Friends, Chichester City Council and John Woley and Sons, Publishers
The notice on the other side states:
Translation of the Papal Pardon
We absolve you, Bishop Godfrey in the place of St Peter, prince of the apostles, to whom the Lord gave the power of binding and releasing, so that as far as your fault requires and commission pertains to us, God the almighty redeemer may be to you, the healing of all your sins, as a tender pardoner. Amen.
On the ?th day before the Kalends of October [25 September] on the feast of St Firmin? bishop and martyr, Bishop Godefrid of Chichester died. The same day was the 5th of the [new] moon.
