Ordinance of the Saladin Tithe.

1188. (Latin text in Stubbs, Select Charters, ninth edition, p. 189. Translation by the editor.)

1. Every one shall this year give in alms a tenth of his revenue and movables, excepting the arms, horses, and equipment of the knights; likewise excepting the horses, books, equipment, vestments, and all manner of furnishings for divine service of the clergy, and also the precious stones of both clerks and laymen.

2. This money is to be collected in the several parishes, there being present the parish priest, the archpriest, a Templar, and a Hospitaler, a minister of the lord king, and a clerk of the king, a minister of the baron and the baron’s clerk, and a clerk of the bishop; excommunication having been previously pronounced by archbishops, bishops, and the arch-priests in the several parishes upon any one who should not rightfully give the assessed tenth, in the presence and with the knowledge of those who ought to be there, as aforesaid. And if, to their knowledge, any one should give less than he ought, let there be chosen from the parish four or six lawful men, who shall state upon oath the amount which he ought to have declared; and then that ought to be added to his smaller payment.
