See also:ROLL . In 1274 the council of
See also:Lyons imposed a tax of a tenth
See also:part of all
See also:church revenues during the six following years for the
See also:relief of the
See also:Land . In Scotland
See also:Gregory X., entrusted the collection of this tax to
See also:Master Boiamund (better known as Bagimund) de Vitia, a
See also:canon of
See also:Asti, whose roll of valuation formed the basis of ecclesiastical
See also:taxation for some centuries .
Boiamund proposed to assess the tax, not according to the old conventional valuation but on the true value of the benefices at the time ofassessment . The
See also:clergy of Scotland objected to this innovation, and, having held a council at Perth in
See also:August 1275, prevailed upon Boiamund to return to Rome for the purpose of persuading the pope to accept the older method of taxation . The pope insisted upon the tax being collected according to the true value, and Boiamund returned to Scotland to superintend its collection . A fragment of Bagimond's Roll in something very like its
See also:form is preserved at Durham, and has been printed by
See also:James Raine in his Priory of Coldingham (Publications of the Surtees Society, vol. xii.) . It gives the real values in one
See also:column and tenth parts in another column of each of the benefices in the archdeaconry of
See also:Lothian: The actual taxation to which this fragment refers was not the tenth collected by Boiamund but the tenth of all ecclesiastical
See also:property in England, Scotland, Wales and
See also:Ireland granted by Pope
See also:Nicholas IV. to
See also:Edward I. of England in the
See also:year 1288 . The fragment should therefore be regarded as supplementary to the Taxatio Ecclesiastica Angliae et Walliae printed by the Record Commissioners in 1802 . Although no contemporary copy of Bagimond's Roll is known to exist, at least three documents give particulars of the taxation of the Church of Scotland in the 16th century, which are based upon the original roll .
