The Constitutions of Clarendon. Laws made by a general council
of nobles and prelates, held at Clarendon, in Wiltshire, in 1164, to
check the power of the Church, and restrain the prerogatives of
ecclesiastics. These famous ordinances, sixteen in number, define the
limits of the patronage and jurisdiction of the Pope in these realms.
