Chapter Summary

For when the bishop’s ordinary judge, Justin Brandenburg was deciding cases in a customary way from his tribunal, Anthony Cruse, along with some trouble-makers, made an interruption. As a result, the authority of both governments came to become diminished in esteem and commons began to assure themselves of immunity in doing anything imaginable. The judge thought that this remarkable insolence, which had not been inflicted so much on himself as on the prince, ought not to be ignored, lest the authority of Church’s jurisdiction in city become diminished in esteem, and he accordingly informed the prince of the affair. The prince sent a command to council ordering that he should be punished, the council should arrest him and impose on him the appropriate penalty. The council ordered Anthony to be arrested at the monastery of St. George and taken to the prison.

Keywords: Anthony Cruse; Church’s jurisdiction; Justin Brandenburg; monastery of St. George
