Papal Bull confirming privileges and domains of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Pierre at Meobecq within the diocese of Bourges, France. The scribe set off the formal preamble in majestic elongated letters, and beneath the main text added the circular papal rota, the pope's name, and an elaborate monogram of the papal farewell "Bene Valete."
