The prelate, wanting to leave a foundation worthier of him, set up collegial barran, the church built recently and perhaps by him, was vast and beautiful.

The parish recognized it for its lord in pareage with the king. During the plague which had just devastated the town of auch, there was transfers its justice. Finally Pierre of clermont his brother gave two thousand Tournois books to form a revenue of it. All these reasons determinerent the archbishop.
